On June 28th, 2017 at 2:00pm, the Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) hosted a free Webinar entitled Transportation Access and Its Importance to Economic Mobility and Family Self-Sufficiency. This moderated Webinar provided an in-depth look at the research on how transportation barriers hinder self-sufficiency for low-income workers and explored practice- and policy-based approaches for alleviating transportation barriers. During this webinar, presenters will discussed the state of the research on transportation as a barrier to self-sufficiency and the relationship between transportation and economic/employment outcomes, as well as provided a practice and policy perspective to include recommendations and findings relevant to the self-sufficiency field. Dr. Evelyn Blumenberg, Dr. Nicholas Klein, and Dr. Asha Weinstein Agrawal served as speakers and Dr. Kristin Abner moderated the discussion.
