Here's an article that came out after the new poverty numbers were released a few weeks ago, and it really zeroes in on the issues underlying AMERICAN WINTER:
It says, "We need to stop looking at poverty as a separate phenomenon from the rest of the economy—an economy with a proliferation of low-wage jobs and a weak and inequitable recovery; and we especially need to stop viewing those who live in poverty as suffering from some sort of character flaw, as opposed to paying the heaviest price for our skewed priorities and choices"
Hopefully, AMERICAN WINTER can play a part in humanizing these issues and can help our country come together to give families a chance at a decent life and an opportunity to strive for the American Dream. That's the goal we are working towards.
