Feb. 26, 7:00 p.m.
Virginia Brown of the United Way of Coastal Georgia and Dr. Don Mathews of the Reg Murphy Center for Economic and Policy Studies at College of Coastal GeorgiaProgram: Virginia Brown, president and CEO of the United Way of Coastal Georgia, and Dr. Don Mathews, director of the Reg Murphy Center for Economic and Policy Studies and professor of economics in the School of Business and Public Management at College of Coastal Georgia, will present up-to-the-minute information and data about “Poverty in Glynn County: What Does It Mean to Our Children and Our Future?”

Recent articles in our local papers have highlighted the studies showing that more than 25 percent of 16- to 24-year-olds in our county are neither working nor going to school. Virginia and Don have been at the forefront of efforts to better understand the implications of these studies so we can adopt public policies to reverse this trend and help us avoid the social, economic and public safety crises that flow from them. The Great Recession hit our area harder than most, and we are still rebounding after others have recovered. How is that affecting us, and what can we do about it? You can do your homework by reading this story in The Brunswick News.
