About this event

This event is provided by SAGE – Senior Advocates for Generational Equity

Robert Putnam, author of Bowling Alone, the seminal work on the decline of social interaction in America, released a new bestseller this spring called Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis, which looks at the growing barriers to upward mobility faced by children and families. While in Portland, Putnam will share a personal and authoritative look at the growing opportunity gap in our country, how and why the American dream of opportunity is broken, and ways in which we can work to restore its promise.
