January 2004

National Poverty in America Month. Created to promote public awareness of the continuing existence of poverty and social injustice in America.  The purpose is to encourage the public to support efforts to eradicate poverty by increasing their understanding of the causes and solutions, and to promote their participation in, and support for, anti-poverty programs. National Poverty in America Month is sponsored by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, a private funder of self-help programs for the poor and disenfranchised in the U.S., regardless of religion, race, or ethnic origin.
