Edin teamed with Luke Shaefer, an expert on surveys of the incomes of the poor. The two made a surprising discovery: the number of American families living on $2.00 per person, per day, has skyrocketed to one and a half million American households, including about three million children. Moderated by Marie Kelly, Yale ’74 M.D., Yale Club of Fort Worth Panelists: Kathryn Edin, PhD, William Church Osborn Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs at Princeton University and co-author of $2 a Day: The Art of Living on Virtually Nothing in America. H. Luke Shaefer, PhD, Hermann and Amalie Kohn Professor of Social Justice and Social Policy at University of Michigan and co-author of $2 a Day: The Art of Living on Virtually Nothing in America. Kathryn Arnold, CEO, Pathfinders (Fort Worth). Pathfinders was established to empower individuals and families to find their path from poverty to self-sufficiency. This virtual event is free and open to the public.

Sometimes redress has been sought through juridical means, other times by material or financial repair, and still other approaches have been symbolic. In some contexts, individual victims have been compensated for proven harm in the past. Other contexts involving massive historical harm done over long periods of time have prompted widely varying approaches to redress. All efforts seek justice in a legal, moral, or political sense, and justice has widely differing definitions across time and cultures. This panel will address these issues historically and in our contemporary world, with attention to the issue of reparations to Black Americans. Moderator: David W. Blight, Director of the Gilder Lehrman Center and Sterling Professor of History, Yale University Panelists · Mary Frances Berry, Geraldine R.
