Join us for a special State of Opportunity call-in show today


Today at 3 p.m., Michigan Radio's Jenn White will host a State of Opportunity call-in show.

We're focusing on the structures and policies that make it hard for Michigan's children to get ahead. 

How does having certain privileges shape our attitudes about poverty? What experiences have you had where you lacked the privilege required to get ahead? 

We'd love to talk to you!

Call in with your questions (866-255-2762) or email us in advance (michiganradioquestion@umich.edu).

Our guests will be:

  • Doak Bloss, Health Equity and Social Justice Coordinator at the Ingham County Health Department
  • Erin Currier, Director of the Economic Mobility Project at the Pew Charitable Trusts
  • Linwood Cousins, Director and Professor at the School of Social Work at Western Michigan University
  • David Callahan, Senior Fellow at Demos and co-author of the report, “Stacked Deck
  • State Rep. Rashida Tlaib, 6th district, SW Detroit 
Rebecca Williams is senior editor in the newsroom, where she edits stories and helps guide news coverage.
