This year is the 50th anniversary of our nation’s declaration of war on poverty. In response, Catholic Charities USA and nine national organizations have joined in a declaration of commitment to reduce poverty in America with this pledge: “We hereby commit to EDUCATE the public about the everyday challenges facing the 46 million people living in poverty in America today; highlight INNOVATIVE solutions to poverty by connecting local practitioners with national leaders; and pledge to ACT to reduce poverty in communities across the country using newfound knowledge and techniques.”

Today we are asking you to join our pledge. By signing up, you are showing your support of CCUSA’s efforts as we work to help the more than 46 milliion individuals in the United States trying to make ends meet. Sign up now.
