From our friends at Half in Ten:

We are excited to announce that the launch of will be this Monday 5/19! A project of the Half in Ten Education Fund, is a new online hub where people can learn about poverty in America and what we can do to dramatically reduce it The vibrant anti-poverty community nationwide will serve as our reporters on the ground. A highlight of is its cutting-edge blog. This will feature posts by guest contributors from across the nation, including low-income people; advocates, activists, policy experts and researchers; direct service providers; civic leaders; and many more. Greg Kaufmann, former poverty correspondent for The Nation, serves as Editor and works with contributors to make the posts accessible for a popular audience.

The site will also offer the most recent statistics on poverty in America, interactive, state-by-state poverty data, links to national and local anti-poverty organizations, and resources for further learning, including Half in Ten’s resources and our favorite articles.
