“Myths, Facts and Action Against Poverty”

A number of resources contained within the Poverty USA website can help separate the facts from the myths about poverty in America today – and can help emphasize the need for personal action and service to this important cause.

Direct your group to the Poverty Quiz, where group members can take a self-directed “True-False” quiz that helps illuminate current statistics on American poverty.

The Poverty Quiz can be used as the starting-points for group discussions about the facts – and myths – surrounding the issues of poverty in America today.
