Coalition Against Poverty

We seek to empower large numbers of current and former welfare mothers and low-income
working people by developing leadership through vigorous public education and action campaigns
for economic survival. We have a dual focus: recruitment and development of low-income leaders,
and effective campaigns that address the economic survival issues that our constituency faces­.

We work to strengthen the welfare safety net and to increase opportunities for affordable housing,
child care, health care, education and living wage jobs. We build grassroots power through empowering
low-income voters, increasing voter participation, and holding elected officials accountable.
