Geoffrey Canada is on a mission to help inner-city kids escape the cycle of poverty. Through his work with the Harlem Children’s Zone, Canada has pioneered a new system, a new vision for what a school can be. It’s a grand experiment that integrates education and social services to support kids from the day they’re born until they graduate from college. In the first in our series on the problem of equity, Canada joins us to discuss how we can ensure that every child has an equal chance for success.

Geoffrey Canada is the president and former CEO of Harlem Children's Zone. He joined us in August for a conversation before a live audience as part of our Problem of Equity speaker series, our partnership with United Way of Salt Lake.

On October 23, the activist and podcast host Brittney Packnett will join us for the final event in our speaker series at 7 p.m. at the SJ Quinney College of Law on the University of Utah campus. DETAILS
