At Kids and Families Day at State Capitol ready to speak up about poverty

Addiction? Incarceration? Unemployment? Obesity?  All these issues stem from vulnerable families trying to get by on a wage that is not live-able or in communities where jobs are scarce.  In 1970, the median job paid roughly $20/hour. Today, it's less than half that.  Our country can thrive when people have the means to rise out of poverty.

 Join the BAPS (Believing All is Possible) youth leadership group, legislators, families, faith leaders and community advocates for a candid discussion about real solutions to child poverty.  You can make a difference.
