A Call to End Child Poverty Now

It is a national moral disgrace that there are 14.7 million poor children and 6.5 million extremely poor children in the United States of America –- the world’s largest economy. It is also unnecessary, costly and the greatest threat to our future national, economic and military security. The United Kingdom, whose economy, if it were an American state, would rank just above Mississippi, committed to and succeeded in cutting its child poverty rate by half in 10 years. It is about values and political will. Sadly, politics in our nation too often trumps good policy and moral decency and responsibility to the next generation and the nation’s future.
