Fighting Poverty with SNAP: Reassessing the Tool Kit for a Unified Movement for Economic Justice

The Othering & Belonging Institute at UC Berkeley

Countless organization. communities, and social movements across the United States are fighting for a more just and equitable future. Alongside their work, this report envisions a future where hunger is recognized as an issue of poverty and not simply a lack of food and thus where poverty itself is curbed and wealth more equitably distributed. We envision a future where we can all share the prosperity of the nation, where the nation acts responsibly toward its people and toward the people of other nations, and where all peoples have dignity (in wages, in workplace protections, and in workplace organizing) regardless of the work they do.
