The event, “The Financial Crisis – Emerging Issues and Trends Faced by American Families” features keynote speaker John Bouman, president of the Sargent Shriver National Center of Poverty Law. Bouman will speak about Sargent Shriver, founder of the center and first president of the United States Peace Corps program, and the 10 issues that need to be addressed to fight the war on poverty.

U.S. Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson will introduce Bouman, and the Legal Clinic’s managing attorney Chris Purnell will speak about the core legal issues affecting impoverished people in central Indiana.

The free event is open to the public and coincides with Peace Corps Week and the celebration of the organization’s 50th anniversary. It is from 5 to 7 p.m. March 1 in the Wynne Courtroom of the law school. A reception will follow in the lobby.
