Half in Ten Campaign Seeks to Cut Poverty

May 25, 2010

Unemployment is expected to average 9.5 percent in 2011 and poverty is expected to surge beyond one in eight Americans, according to the Half in Ten Campaign. In 2008, nearly one in four children lived in a household struggling against hunger and the recession and past policy
decisions are making it harder for children to grow up healthy and resilient. The 2011 budget and other proposals could make a
difference, says Deborah Weinstein, head of the Coalition on Human Needs.
