Welcome to the UCSB Blum Center on Poverty, Inequality, and Democracy

The UCSB Blum Center aims to foster interdisciplinary, socially engaged research and learning about poverty and inequality, and to contribute to collective action that advances intersectional economic and environmental justice regionally, in the United States, and abroad. Established with funding from UC Regent Richard C. Blum and the UC Office of the President, it is part of a ten-campus network across the UC system.

In our last newsletter of the year, we debrief what 2020 means for poverty, inequality, and democracy, and highlight some great opportunities for students.

Join us on January 25th for a virtual Pop-Up discussion on Isabel Wilkerson’s book, Caste: The Origins of our Discontents, through which she examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped the US through history till today.
