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.

    Poverty is unjust and hits minorities especially hard. This deprives these children of the opportunity for their promised rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    As a Nurse I saw three generations of childhood poverty with little access to healthcare and poor nutrition and less access to enriching education. Until we meet Maslow’s Hieractchy of Needs, our children cannot thrive

    No children should go hungry or be without a proper place to sleep. They need to have satisfied bellies, enough sleep, and nutrition to be able to learn. If they can’t learn, they will have difficulties finding work later in life, and the awful cycle of poverty continues. Parents need decent wages and affordable housing to be able to provide for their families. As U.S. Citizens, we should be making efforts toward assuring everyone has a real chance at living a comfortable life.

    With new laws that favor the rich, there will be even more children in need.
