Urban Wire MetroTrends week in review
Display Date

With both major political parties’ national conventions finished this week, the MetroTrends blog featured two issues worthy of national consideration.

  • Marge Turner wrote about why poverty matters, to the nation, to all those it affects, and to the policy researchers who must help maintain a robust and functioning safety net
  • Zach McDade wrote two blogs about the ongoing foreclosure crisis in Prince George’s county: one features a policymaker toolkit designed by NeighborhoodInfoDC; the other features the six banks that are collectively responsible for beginning foreclosure proceedings on nearly 35,000 families in the county
