Family Independence Initiative (FII) partners directly with families to collect information that reveals the capacity, ingenuity, resourcefulness, and talents of low-income communities and families. Applying this deeper understanding of what low-income families are already doing, FII collaborates with influencers and communities to reinvent the approach to resource development and ignite collective action toward greater economic and social mobility.

In this presentation, Jesús Gerena shares the work of FII and the families it partners with to spark social and economic mobility once again across all income levels in the U.S.
