Growing up in forgotten America - AEI

Share Mark as favorite

From Portsmouth, Ohio, to Ohatchee, Alabama, photojournalist Chris Arnade captures the stories of “forgotten America.” These are the areas hit hardest by job loss, income stagnation, and drug addiction, yet they are often overlooked by policymakers and the press. Mr. Arnade’s reporting illuminates gaps between the reality experienced by millions of struggling Americans and the frequently abstract policy discussions in Washington, DC.

Please join AEI for a presentation by Mr. Arnade of his work, followed by a discussion with early-childhood expert Katharine Stevens. This event will explore the implications of growing up in “forgotten” communities for families and children across the US and solutions to the persistent challenges they face.

Join the conversation on social media with #ArnadeAtAEI.
