Moral Tragedy of Child Poverty on Mon., Feb. 3 at 7 PM at Politics and Prose, 5015
Connecticut Ave. NW, WDC 20008.By
official count, more than one out of every six children in the U.S. live

roots of the problem include the ineffectual remnants of our social welfare
system, entrenched racism, and an unmotivated government.In his newest book, “Invisible
Americans: The Tragic Cost of Child Poverty,” director of the Bernard L.
Schwartz Rediscovering Government Initiative Jeff Madrick makes the case for a
policy that would drastically reduce or end child poverty in the United States:
a universal child allowance. Go to https://www.politics-prose.com/event/book/jeff-madrick-invisible-americans-tragic-cost-of-child-poverty?mc_cid=3446c6d374&mc_eid=0f57b5a0f.
