Moriah's story: "I grew up in poverty. Education was my pathway out."
"In 2019, Invest in Tomorrow looks to lift 2,000 children out of poverty, increase work among low-income families by 160,000 hours and increase earnings for those families by $5 million. Overall, the initiative is setting the goal of cutting childhood poverty in half in 10 years.
The goals may sound daunting, but we absolutely know what policies work and how we can work together to reduce childhood poverty.
I speak from personal experience. My family has found those opportunities with the help of smart policy and good state programs."
