Youth Today Special Report: Rural America

James Swift
June 19, 2013

Youth Today reporter James Swift builds on his own experience growing up in poverty and opens it into a compelling and overdue look at the nation's poor, and our rural towns and families who remain deeply impacted by the recession.

Accompanied by a stunning photo essay by photographer Jan Banning, this special digital magazine report brings a new dimension to the too-quiet public discussion of poverty ----and is not to be missed.
