Innovation Mission Fellows; Statehouse Update
How do you break the cycle of poverty and move families up the economic ladder? For the past 18-months The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland, partnering with the Cleveland Leadership Center, has been working to help encourage and develop innovative ideas aimed at breaking down specific barriers faced by low-income families. We'll meet the five fellows chosen for the Innovation Mission: Fighting Poverty with Big Ideas. We'll discuss where their ideas have taken them over the last year-and-a-half.
Then, we'll check in with our team at the Ohio Statehouse where the Senate prepares to give a look at its budget plans and a possible effort to expand gun background checks.
