We the American Poor
We the American poor remind our nation's leaders, public and private, Democratic and Republican, that we exist and have unmet needs. Though most of our population is the working poor, we also include souls sleeping in parks as Winter descends... in the wealthiest nation on Earth.
We petition these leaders to consider more seriously the founding creed of our nation that all humans are "created equal." We are weary of eating one meal a day, tearing our hair out about how to pay the doctor and dentist, how to shoe our children! We fervently implore your aid.
