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.

    For a state that is richly blessed in so many ways, it is a “crime” to think that many of our children are going to bed hungry, braving the cold without adequate housing and heat and attending substandard schools.

    I’m moving from Marquette county to Milwaukee County, but am aware of the serious poverty that exists in both counties. I have spoken with a clergy group in Waushara County and we’ll be meeting with folks from the 20/20 program on the 16th of January to learn more and hopefully take some actions.

    Poverty can be eliminated in this country. I have seen so much poverty around the country and believe that this can be changed and that we as a country can do better.

    As a school social worker (and child protection worker before that), I have seen first hand the lifelong consequences from childhood poverty. These are physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and all-encompassing .

    Children born into poverty have a lifelong uphill battle to success at school, form healthy relationships and get equip to contribute to society. They need early intervention with education being most important and a place to live, with food in their bellies.

    Having taught in MPS since the late ‘70s, I have seen many children and families in need. Something needs change in our system to honor all people’s worth and dignity.
