Talk about Poverty: Jessica’s Story

Jessica Bartholow is one of the brightest and most hard working anti-poverty advocates out there, and I’m proud to know her.  She shares her story, and her questions for President Obama and Governor Romney regarding how they would ensure economic security in this article from “The Nation.”

Jessica is a testament to the idea that smart investments in our people, like Pell grants and the school lunch program, do have lasting and positive effects.  Her questions explore how our leadership will protect and promote the American Dream, something we all have a stake in.
