United Way of Racine invites the community to learn about ALICE: The New Face of Hardship in Wisconsin

united way logoOn November 10, United Way of Racine County will host a community briefing to share the first statewide ALICE Report. The ALICE report, first unveiled in September 2016, is a data-driven, comprehensive research project upending the conventional view of Wisconsin. The report reveals a new demographic referred to as ALICE, an acronym which means Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. This report shares the research that illustrates the depth and breadth of ALICE residents of Wisconsin and Racine County. Attendees will learn more about ALICE, review the findings from the report, and begin a dialogue about strategies for long-term systemic change.

Nearly 670,922 ALICE residents of Wisconsin keep our economy running—working behind cash registers, fixing our cars, and caring for our young and elderly. We know that education, financial stability, and access to quality health care can improve circumstances and increase household stability. We also know that hardworking individuals and families are struggling to get by. Wisconsin would be a far different place if every individual and family was able to meet their basic needs as well as save for emergencies and their future. Wisconsin communities would not only be stronger, but thriving, and the ALICE Report is a step towards that future.
