Catholic Charities USA has launched the Campaign to Reduce Poverty in America. Poverty in America is a moral and social crisis. It threatens the health and economic well-being of our families and our nation as a whole. The goal of the Campaign is to cut the U.S. poverty rate in half by 2020. Unrealistic? Not if we work together. We call upon all in our nation to address the issues that impact the most vulnerable and act now to reduce poverty in our nation.
