Abstract:

The United States can defeat poverty, providing we muster our resources and political will. We have many proven tools available to prevail in this battle, and we must be willing to experiment with other untested but promising approaches. The Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law's twelve-point antipoverty agenda is a framework for implementing public policies that make federal action central in overcoming our nation's shameful legacy of poverty.
