American inner cities have been plagued by a set of problems that seem intractable. As we study inner-city life, we are often confronted with the same questions: What is poverty? How can we attend it? Are these the right questions to ask regarding the condition of poverty? We will explore these questions with both an honest and realistic position and a hopeful outlook. We must analyze the problems that plague the inner city from a perspective built on personalism, the entrepreneurial vocation, and simple solutions.

Join AFF-Detroit and the Acton Institute as we welcome Ismael Hernandez, founder and executive director of the Freedom and Virtue Institute, who will discuss how to provide a practical approach to the integration of these vital factors.

Join us at 6:00pm to meet and network with other young professionals from across Michigan. The remarks will begin at 6:30pm, with more networking to follow. As always, we’ll have free food and your first drink is on us.
