SHARON, TAMARA, AND LIVING ON $2 A DAY

Back in December we hosted a webinar featuring Kathryn J. Edin and H. Luke Schaefer, the authors of $2 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America, as well as a panel of experts on poverty: Sharon and Tamara, who have experienced abject poverty first-hand and survived to share their tale; and Kate Scully, policy director for the Center for Hunger Free Communities.

The webinar was co-sponsored by our allies Children’s Leadership Council, Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), Food Research & Action Center (FRAC), National Women’s Law Center and MomsRising.

Although approximately 1,000 human needs advocates signed up for the webinar (despite it being three days before Christmas!) we still believe that the stories it covered deserve further amplification and distribution – particularly the stories shared by Sharon and Tamara. So, today we’re going to amplify and distribute!
