TIME Magazine Announces Opportunity Nation Summit

Posted on

In the latest issue of TIME Magazine, Managing Editor Richard Stengel announces TIME۪s participation in the Opportunity Nation Summit, to be held November 3-4 in New York City.  TIME is joining the Ford Foundation, AARP, and the United Way in convening the summit, which will also include participation by co-chair Mayor Michael Bloomberg and more than 150 organizations and businesses.  <?xml:namespace prefix = o />


The letter۪s opening lines offer a chilling and important reminder of the challenges our society faces: “Unemployment. The in­creasing divide between rich and poor. Decreasing social mobility. All of these are symptoms as well as causes of an economic land­scape that is changing the planet in ways that are impossible to ignore.”  Yet Stengel closes on a hopeful note, exhorting us all “to put our minds and wallets behind the idea of restoring the American Dream for all.”


As a new media partner to Opportunity Nation, Spotlight is delighted to see poverty receive such significant attention and OOTS is looking forward to the upcoming summit.
