H. Luke Shaefer is the director of Poverty Solutions, the Hermann and Amalie Kohn Professor of Social Justice and Social Policy, and a professor of social work at the University of Michigan. He is among a group of poverty scholars who have contributed significant research on the potential for an expanded child tax credit that follows the design of a child allowance to reduce child poverty rates in the U.S.

Shaefer and Kathryn Edin, the William Church Osborn Professor of Sociology and Public Affairs at Princeton University, will host a panel discussion on the implications of the expanded Child Tax Credit and the potential for the U.S. to adopt a permanent child allowance. Panelists include:
- U.S. Congressman Andy Levin (MI-09)
- Vonnie McLoyd, the Ewart A. C. Thomas Collegiate Professor of Psychology, University of Michigan
- Gene Sperling, The White House American Rescue Plan coordinator and senior advisor to President Biden
- Samuel Hammond, director of poverty and welfare policy at the Niskanen Center
- Dorian Warren, co-president of Community Change

The virtual panel is free and open to the public, and U-M students can participate as part of a one-credit course, SWK 503 Section 001. This event is part of the annual Real-World Perspectives on Poverty Solutions fall speaker series, which introduces key issues regarding the causes and consequences of poverty featuring experts in policy and practice from across the nation, with the goal of encouraging the formation of a broad community of learners to engage in these issues together.
