From Nick Wertsch, Program Coordinator from the Kalmanovitz Initiative:
Georgetown University's Kalmanovitz Initiative (KI) for Labor and the Working Poor develops creative strategies and innovative public policy to improve workers' lives in a changing economy. We conduct research, develop policy ideas, and facilitate student programs.
The Kalmanovitz Initiative is grounded in a commitment to justice, democracy, and the common good. We draw on Georgetown University's tradition of excellent scholarship in the service of the common good, in Jesuit and Catholic social teachings, history of inter-religious cooperation, global reach, and prominence as an arena of policy debate in the nation's capital.
We are thrilled to be working with ONE DC, and we believe this will create a stronger connection between Georgetown and the larger DC community. By collaborating with ONE DC, we hope to support their efforts to promote a more fair and equitable DC for all of the city's residents.
