The National Conference on Ending Poverty March 29, 201450 YEARS after declaring a war on poverty, 50 million children and adults in our country are still mired in poverty. Another 60 million live below 200% of the poverty line, in significant need of support with life’s necessities. The good news is we know how to end poverty for one individual and one family after another. We can ensure that every American has a chance at the freedom and independence that is at the core of our nation, but that poverty denies.
