Poverty and inequality threaten the State’s economic vitality and strain New York’s public systems including health, education and public safety. The Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy’s priorities urge the State to put children and families who live in poverty at the center of public discourse and renew the State’s commitment to fight poverty by expanding opportunity.  See Creating Opportunity for New York’s Families: Schuyler Center Policy Priorities 2014-15.
