N. Charleston, SC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) toured the Chicora-Cherokee neighborhood of North Charleston, South Carolina as part of his National Opportunity Tour. Scott was joined by leaders of Metanoia, a Community Development Corporation. Below you will find pictures from today’s tour.

Sen. Scott’s Opportunity Tour will take him around the country, meeting with local and state leaders, to find innovative solutions to fight poverty and bring opportunity back to distressed communities. The lessons learned on the tour will help power the next iteration of his Opportunity Agenda, half of which has now been signed into law over the past few years.

The tour will also focus on highlighting the Investing in Opportunity Act, which was recently passed in tax reform legislation, and the ways it could positively impact economically distressed neighborhoods in South Carolina and states across the country.
