“The nation really can dramatically increase mobility from poverty and restore the American dream. It cannot be done by any one group or organization or government policy. The nation must come together, with leaders across a range of institutions and sectors working to advance mobility from poverty. It will not be easy, but it is achievable.”
To increase economic opportunity for individuals and neighborhoods in Chicago, public and private leaders must work together to address the factors that impact social mobility and community disinvestment. The Pritzker Traubert Foundation is proud of our partnerships with many talented organizations and individuals that are yielding positive outcomes and we look forward to deepening our impact in the months and years ahead.
