Those are just some of the questions at the heart of a new conference called The Many Faces of Poverty. It's being led by, among others, the College at Brockport’s Institute for Poverty Studies and Economic Development. Our guests:

  • Celia Watt, director of the Institute for Poverty Studies and Economic Development

  • Lisa Robusto-Mack, events coordinator for The College at Brockport
  • Lesli Myers, superintendent of Brockport Central Schools
