Spartanburg Interfaith Alliance – Economic Mobility in Spartanburg County
June 12, 2019 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Topic: Economic Mobility in Spartanburg County
Speaker: Travis Wharton, Consultant, Spartanburg Network for Southern Economic Mobility Initiative
Location: Temple B’nai Israel
The Spartanburg Network for Southern Economic Mobility began because data shows that only 4.3% of children in Spartanburg County born in the lowest income bracket have a chance of rising to the highest income bracket. Since November 2017, a leadership team comprised of private, public, and nonprofit leaders have collected and interviewed data and analyzed systems in place to identify barriers to economic mobility. The end goal is to create and implement an integrated action plan of strategies and partnerships that will lead to a systems-change approach in reducing barriers and creating pathways to economic mobility. Join us for an interactive discussion about the work taking place to address Spartanburg’s economic mobility.
