We Interrupt Today's Events To Discuss An Ongoing Issue

So you think that you know about poverty? Take this quiz.
I found out that I didn't know as much as I thought I did. Half in Ten has set an ambitious goal of cutting the poverty rate in half by 2020.

  • Numbers are on the rise in the suburbs.
  • The majority are white.
  • The federal poverty line is about $20K, but for an average two-kid two-income family, it takes over $40k to stay solvent.
Please, can you stop to find out what else you can do? Thanks.
