The Injustice of Place

October 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The Injustice of Place book cover Join for a conversation with Kathryn Edin, Luke Shaefer, and Tim Nelson, the co-authors of The Injustice of Place; alongside Michigan Congressman Dan Kildee. Shaefer is the faculty director of Poverty Solutions at U-M, the Hermann and Amalie Kohn Professor of Social Justice and Social Policy, and a social work professor.

Released in August 2023, The Injustice of Place sheds light on America’s most disadvantaged communities, tracing the legacies of our nation’s places of deepest need—including inequalities shaping people’s health, livelihoods, and upward social mobility for families. Wrung dry by powerful forces and corrupt government officials, the “internal colonies” in these regions were exploited for their resources and then left to collapse.

The book’s co-authors will reflect briefly on the book, followed by an armchair conversation drawing from Congressman Kildee’s own work to combat poverty in the city of Flint and beyond.

This event is open to the public, and people can register to attend in person at Weill Hall or to watch a livestream online.
