The League of Women Voters of San Antonio invites you to our second virtual forum on Economic Inequity in Bexar County, the second forum in a series of four. This forum will address education and childcare as it relates to economic inequity.
The gap between the poor, working class, middle class, and economic elite has grown over the past several decades. Most researchers who have studied this trend agree that it threatens our democracy, our economic growth, and the very values that underly our country.
Recognizing this trend, in May 2020, the membership of the League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area approved a study of the degree, causes, and effects of wealth and economic inequality, with a focus on Bexar County and the surrounding area. A study committee, composed of League members, has been working on this important topic for the past year.
The committee will share its results through a series of planned forums, starting with baseline information in this first forum: why economic inequity is an important issue; what are the factors shaping economic inequity at the national, state and local level; and how our community was and is shaped by these factors. We will conclude with an outline of topics that will be covered in the later presentations.
The Economic Inequity in Bexar County forum is free and open to the public. We hope that you will join us.
Date: Wednesday, May 26
Time: 6 p.m.
