Poverty

I’d like to share two things that speak about poverty.

This blog post related to the Poor People’s Campaign that my Quaker friend Jason Shenk has been involved with.  Jason lives and does his work in the Elkhart, Indiana area that experienced a dramatic increase in unemployment in a matter of weeks when the RV manufacturing plants laid off thousands of workers.  The video in that blog post is very powerful:  http://poorpeoplescampaign.org/poor-peoples-campaign-midwest-tour/

The second is Sheila Kennedy’s blog post today http://www.sheilakennedy.net/2016/09/calvin-and-alice/
