TalkPoverty.org—a project of the Half in Ten Education Fund—is dedicated to demonstrating that we know how to dramatically reduce poverty. In fact, if we create the political will, we can cut poverty by half in ten years. Here you will find basic data about poverty in America; hear from people living in poverty and people dedicated to the fight against poverty; and get involved with local, state and national organizations to take action.
TalkPoverty.org is a bridge between local and national voices, grassroots activism and policy work, and those who are struggling and those who are more economically secure. At TalkPoverty.org, discover a vibrant antipoverty community and your place in it.
