We believe in a vision of ending child poverty in Wisconsin. We believe that the people of Wisconsin, working together, can cut child poverty in half in the next ten years. Seeking greater equity, our vision includes cutting racial disparities in child poverty in half. We are committed to evidence-based evaluation of progress.

    No child should suffer because of poverty. This is a trauma that will affect their learning and therefore their futures.

    If we don’t address childhood poverty, we will continue to experience generations of poverty that does lasting harm to them and to society.

    All children have the right to nourishing food, shelter and stability. Our country is only as strong as the poorest among us.

    In my work as a clinician, I have seen much loss in potential in children as a result of poverty, and much trauma in neighborhoods with high poverty. We cannot be an economic power when we leave a segment of the community behind, not harnessing their capacity to contribute in their own unique way.

    Whenever one person, child or adult, is raised up out of poverty not only is their world better, but the world is better for everyone. This child then has a better chance at a healthy and productive life. This child could be the one that comes up with a cure for cancer, but not if he’s stuck in poverty, unable to become that educated person who can lead to new discoveries. Less poverty means less crime, less violence, less cost to society as a whole. What’s good for one is good for all.
