Community Event: Renewing the American Dream

Renewing the American Dream

Expanding Education and Opportunity for More Americans

The American economy is strong, but tens of millions of people are on the outside looking in, unable to overcome the struggles that mount from too little opportunity. There are communities that build ladders of opportunity so people can live better lives. Join us for a conversation about what we can do to include more people in the American dream.

This conversation will be facilitated by University of Virginia President James E. Ryan and feature leaders from the Charlottesville community.
