Please join us on April 10, 2019 for an open conversation on how to most effectively deploy research to advance state and local policy change with Kriston McIntosh and Jay Shambaugh of the Brookings Institution’s Hamilton Project. The Hamilton Project produces evidence-based policy proposals and analyses to promote broad economic growth that benefits more Americans. The conversation will be moderated by Nebraska Appleseed Executive Director Becky Gould and we will be joined by Board members and Center staff from around the Appleseed Network.
