California, the wealthiest state in the union, has the worst child poverty rate in the country. And we like to think we’re so progressive.
We will no longer tolerate the status quo, and today we’re announcing a partnership with End Child Poverty in California — a campaign from the anti-poverty organization GRACE. They have been working with academics, lawmakers, service providers, and people experiencing poverty to develop effective solutions to the problem.
Sign up, follow them on social media, and get ready to take action:
We can help by joining the conversation, and by spreading the word to our allies. Californians have big hearts, and we know if our neighbors understand how bad the problem is, and that real solutions are out there, we can eradicate poverty in our state. But it will take all of us to impact change.
