    One in four children in Chicago live in poverty. Now more than ever, the city needs bold solutions to this intractable challenge. In this unique conversation hosted by Chicago Ideas and A Better Chicago, we will highlight innovative approaches to tackling poverty in cities across the country in order to address the wealth gap in our city for generations to come.
