Feb 27, 2008
  • Description

As the From Poverty to Opportunity Campaign: Realizing Human Rights in Illinois traveled from Carlinville to Evanston to Madison to Chicago's west side, individuals from across Illinois at 20 different forums throughout 2007 spoke to the reality that poverty is the absence of these human rights. This understanding fueled thoughtful, involved conversations about the barriers for people experiencing poverty and the solutions that need to be in place to give people real opportunity.
