Poverty along the continuum of Economic Security

More detailed poverty numbers are due this week, but as the authors of this article (Making sense of poverty numbers - By Barbara Ehrenreich and Diana Pearce) state, it's not just about counting the poor, it's about defining a clearer picture of household financial health.

For a continuing discussion, join national and local advocates for a free regional meeting-- Building Bridges to Economic Security--this Friday, October 1, 2010. Register here to attend. Topics include creating a flexible workplace, making the case for social security, community investment and the impact of poverty reduction task forces.
