A special webinar with authors Kathryn Edin and Luke Shaefer, whose book $2 a Day describes in depth the lives of families living in extreme poverty in America.  $2.00 a Day has been included in theNew York Times Book Review list of 100 Notable Books of 2015.  When he reviewed the book in September, respected Harvard sociologist William Julius Wilson wrote, “This essential book is a call to action, and one hopes it will accomplish what ­Michael Harrington’s “The Other America” achieved in the 1960s — arousing both the nation’s consciousness and conscience about the plight of a growing number of invisible citizens.”


Kathy and Luke will be joined by a panel of experts:  people who have lived in such deep poverty.  Their comments and questions – and yours – will be moderated by CHN’s executive director, Deborah Weinstein.


At a time when some are intent on feeding divisiveness and hatred, please join us in this call to conscience.
