Our Eastside Hill Neighborhood Association is sponsoring an exploration of the increasing childhood poverty rate in Wisconsin. It will document this crisis, offer solutions and give you the opportunity to share your perspective. It takes place February 7, 6 PM, at Spirit Lutheran Church, 1310 Main Street.

In Wisconsin 1 in 6 kids live in poverty. Wisconsin has one of the highest racial disparity poverty rates in the United States.

This campaign is being led by four state-wide groups: Wisconsin Council of Churches, WISDOM, Kids Forward and Citizen Action of Wisconsin Educational Fund.
