I was off this week so just a short post today. I’ll resume regular posts next Friday.
Below is a list of some of the groups working every day to eradicate poverty. It’s by no means exhaustive, but I encourage you to check them out and get involved. These groups and others are doing their best to generate the kind of popular and political will that helped reduce poverty by 43 percent between 1964–1973.
Finally, a personal thanks: this blog has now been running for three months and reader participation has been fantastic. Your comments have been invaluable, whether critical or supportive of the ideas expressed in the posts. I hope this will continue to be a space where you can find ways to get involved, voice your ideas about poverty and engage in respectful debate.
