End Poverty Now

Now is the time for each of us to take personal responsibility to change the dialogue about poverty. In order to bring ideas about ending poverty to fruition and add legislative muscle to a serious movement to help struggling Americans end poverty forever, we’re calling for a White House Conference on the Eradication of Poverty.

In light of millions now living in poverty, we’re calling on everyday people from coast to coast to sign a petition for the first official act of President Obama on January 21, 2013, to be the announcement of a White House Conference on the Eradication of Poverty in America.

With a surplus of opportunity, affirmation, compassion, courage and imagination, we can make poverty an archaic remnant of how America used to be. Here’s to those precious and priceless Americans on whose behalf this battle will be waged and won!
