Many people have been speaking of poverty in the post-Katrina discussion
John Edwards has apparently been trying to raise awareness about it for the past few years. He's coming to UofM in October, if you want to go talk to him about it:
Friday October 28th 11:30 a.m. Michigan League Ballroom 911 N. University Ann Arbor MI 48109
John Edwards will visit the University of Michigan as last stop on his two week long cross country campus tour launching Project Opportunity, a student-led effort to encourage young people to become engaged in the fight against poverty. The event is open to members of the community in addition to students!
