What We Do

Whatever is necessary to ensure that people in poverty are heard and listened to on issues that affect our lives

  • Empower current and former welfare recipients, low wage workers, and people living in poverty by providing them with the knowledge and the tools to change their lives.
  • Educate current and former welfare recipients, low wage workers, and persons living in poverty on their rights and how to advocate on behalf of themselves and others concerning their rights.
  • Organize people in poverty including youth to provide a voice to be heard on the local, state, and national level.
  • Provide training, support, and advocacy to empower people in poverty to be heard on the national, regional, and state levels to ensure that they have a voice in the policies that affect them.
  • Organize people in poverty to become leaders in their community.
  • Provide a space where youth in poverty can organize around issues they are concerned with – our Teen DAWG program.
