    Childhood poverty is an adverse childhood experience. Why does Wisconsin fund more to incarcerate people than to invest in our children so they won’t ever be incarcerated? We need to budget more for education and stop the insanity of setting people up to fail. Let’s invest in our children’s future so they can be successful, contributing members of our society. All children deserve a better life!

    People themselves at times need to get involved directly, because our politicians, in their busy world, at times, do not know all the statistics. So, consequently, at times, they need help from us, their constituents.

    Because nearly every social problem has some of its roots in poverty. Helping lift kids out of poverty makes things better for all of us.

    We need to provide nutrition for children. If one person sponsored one child, what a difference it could make!
