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.

    Because poverty affects children in many negative ways.

    It’s both a marker and a root cause for many of Wisconsin’s social and economic problems. It’s a moral issue as well, profoundly reflecting the lack of community responsibility for the vulnerable in our midst…and lack of vision about the worth and dignity of each person. Our future depends on this, in many ways.

    Because poverty leads to under-representation in public life, and to health problems, homelessness, racial disparities, educational difficulties, etc.

    Poverty affects the child’s ability to achieve success and impacts the home and society.
