"A person's a person no matter how small."-Dr. Suess
What does it mean to live in the state that has the fastest growing rate of childhood poverty in the country, only to then discover that you live in a wealthy "developed" country that has one of the highest childhood poverty rates in the world? Yes, yes, it's "relative" and "relative" means it's not you. Read on, be outraged and then join us this summer as we work on reducing poverty across the state. Report: US Has One Of The Highest Child Poverty Rates In The Developed World. The task force planning meeting for Interim 2012 is June 11th at Pizza Fusion on Colfax & Pearl. Lunch will be provided so we hope to see you there.
