Welfare is a hot button issue for many in the U.S. But untangling fiction from truth and perception from reality can be difficult. To help create a more accurate picture of welfare today, our project:
- relies on data and statistics to explore the complex truths about welfare
- shares the stories of welfare recipients to hear firsthand the challenges of living close to the poverty line
Much of this research is now captured in a new book: Overthrowing the Queen: Telling Stories of Welfare in America.
