Our Stories

Hear our stories of strong resolve in the face of economic struggle.

Stories of Resilience is a multi-media campaign that illustrates the breadth and complexity of the human experience of poverty in the United States by telling the stories of those affected, in both video and portrait format. The campaign combats the stigma and widespread myths surrounding poverty in the US. Share your own #SafetyNetStories and #StoriesOfResilience on social media to spread the word and end the stigma.

Today, safety net programs, such as food stamps and Medicaid, and those that rely on them are under attack. Take action today to protect our communities.
