Join us as we explore the ways the dominant negative narratives about poverty affect the financial security of families in our communities. Through insightful discussion, interviews with experts, and shared research in the field, we'll talk about changing mindsets, improving narratives, and ultimately building more effective financial programs.

For the very first episode of TPA Voices, we sat down with Joe Soss, co-author of "Disciplining the Poor: Neoliberal Paternalism and the Persistent Power of Race." In this episode, we discuss neoliberal paternalism and how racialized the U.S. welfare system has become since the War on Poverty began in the 1960's.
Listen in on our conversation and stay tuned for more in-depth conversations in each episode.
