Fifty years after President Lyndon Johnson launched his “Great Society” agenda, where do we stand when it comes to providing services, as well as economic and social mobility, to those in need? During this event, we’ll explore the future of our existing social programs.
Between 1964 and 1968, President Lyndon Johnson had launched and implemented a huge range of social programs known as the “Great Society” agenda. Those programs launched vast expansions of the federal government’s role in housing, health, transportation, the arts, economic development and the environment. The resulting programs would fundamentally change expectations regarding the role of the federal government—as well as the relationship between federal, state and local governments in delivering services to citizens.
Fast-forward fifty years, the form and efficacy of these programs are being questioned at every level of government. We’ll not only look at ideas for reform that are being tested across our nation, but also the data behind them.
