The Florida Chamber Foundation’s Less Poverty, More Prosperity: Florida’s Fiscal Cliffs Report shows Florida has more than 3.1 million people living in poverty, with 944,415 of that total under the age of 18. The large number of Floridians living in poverty in our state impacts not only individual families, but also businesses, Florida’s economy, and our state’s global competitiveness. Florida will find it harder to succeed in 2030 and beyond if more than 1 in 6 Floridians continue living in poverty.
Join the Florida Chamber Foundation for an important conversation on the critical issues surrounding poverty, including understanding the depth and breadth of poverty in Florida, learning what poverty is and what is isn’t, as well as talking about how Florida’s businesses can create economic prosperity for all Floridians moving forward.
