Some of you may have recently read the Heritage Foundation's recent report, featured in Fox News and other media outlets regarding poverty in the United States. Here's the report's executive summary: http://thf_media.s3.amazonaws.com/2011/pdf/bg2575.pdf For some balance, here is the link to Shriver Center’s piece on poverty & consumer products, responding to Heritage Foundation. We encourage you to read this excellent response. http://www.theshriverbrief.org/2011/07/articles/economic-justice/because...

We would appreciate your thoughts on this report and will set some time aside on this issue at tomorrow's Coalition meeting. The Coalition will host more in-depth discussions on a response to poverty and strategies for responding to the growth in hostile press against low income households in the fall Coalition meetings.
