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.

    I’m ashamed of WI Politicians who blame poor for being poor. Gov Walker’s W.E.D.C. gives money to corporations who ship WI Jobs OVERSEAS! There’s NO Accountability! STOP CORPORATE WELFARE.

    Through St. VIncent de Paul we see many families who live in poverty and the children suffer the most.

    Reducing child poverty is cost-effective—and less complicated—than grappling with its consequences, which extend across generations. And as schools continue (!) to lose funding, the gap gets bigger; wealthier families have the financial means to offset cuts. NO child “deserves” to live in poverty.

    The problem will not go away on its own. It’s not a priority yet for anyone to address.

    It is unconscionable that the richest country in the world can’t find the political will to care for its’ children.
