Alliance for the American Dream
Remember the middle class? It's the backbone of the American economic structure. That illustrious place at the intersection of hard work and perseverance where families can be economically secure. Anyone who strives for it is told that they can attain it. But across Ohio, and across our country, the middle class is fading away.
The Ohio State University is collaborating with Schmidt Futures to launch the Alliance for the American Dream — an initiative to identify ideas that will foster true social mobility, true equality of opportunity and a true middle class that is attainable and sustainable.Alliance for the American Dream
