    Child poverty is a moral issue. To think that there are millions of children living in poverty in the wealthiest nation in the world is truly sinful. Choices have been made by those in government that have greatly hurt children and their families. Inequality is at its highest level ever. We must end childhood poverty.

    Food and housing security are paramount for healthy emotional, physical, and intellectual development. Children who live in poverty do not have equitable access or opportunity to develop their potential.

    Child poverty affects children’s ability to be healthy, learn in school, and succeed as members of our community in the future. And that affects all of us.

    No child should live in poverty. This country has more than enough wealth to prevent that.

    Its in the science… undernourished children have developmental problems that interfere with their ability to learn. When we ignore hungry children we allow all manner of societal ills to advance to the next generation.

    It is unacceptable that the relatively prosperous and thriving state of WI has such high child poverty. We must do better for our children. They are our future.
