Austerity measures have sent shivers of fear through Europe -- and are starting to have a devastating effect on municipalities large and small in the United States. A new Huffington Post series on austerity will examine the global impact of austerity, from the loss of affordable housing funds in San Francisco, to increasing class sizes in New York's public schools, fewer food inspectors in Canada, loss of disability benefits in the United Kingdom, decimation of France's solar industry and more.
But as readers of The Huffington Post, you can take action to help those affected by these measures. Check back here after stories in the series are published for information on how you can help.
