My Turn: Move forward in child poverty fight


The Vermont Child Poverty Council was established by the Legislature in 2007 and charged with developing a plan to cut child poverty in half in 10 years. The Legislature recognized that the plan had to be long term. A problem as persistent as poverty cannot be solved overnight.

Voices for Vermont’s Children has served on the council from the start, working with council members to collect information about the circumstances of Vermont’s poor and low-income children and their families and to develop poverty-reduction recommendations that were published in our January 2009 report.
