Broke in America book cover

Nobody in the United States needs to be poor. Not today and not ever.

Water. Food. Housing.
The most basic and crucial needs for survival, yet 40 percent of people in the United States don’t have the resources to get them.

With key policy changes, we could eradicate poverty in this country within our lifetime — but we need to get started now.

Broke in America offers a crucial road map to fixing policy and securing a brighter future for all.
