Ask Congress to Support the Half in Ten Act of 2013!

Last week Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD)introduced the Half in Ten Act of 2013, calling for poverty reduction to be a national priority. The bill creates a coordinated effort across federal departments and offices to cut poverty in half in 10 years and eliminate child poverty and extreme poverty in the United States.

The Half in Ten Act of 2013 will help to mobilize public and political will toward our shared goal of dramatically cutting poverty over the next decade, and we must seize the opportunity! Please ask your member of Congress to support the Half in Ten Act of 2013 and demand greater opportunity for all!
