Economic Hardship Reporting Project

Post by Guest on Thu May 17, 2012 1:33 pm

As more and more people join the ranks of "Exhaustees" due to the cutbacks and changes in the Federal and state extended benefits programs, new groups are emerging to take action. Many here know all that we have tried to do, and it would be great if we shared this information with the "newbies". Take a look at this new group - from what I understand big name journalists and politicians will be following.

We find new ways to approach the coverage of poverty & economic hardship with a team led by Barbara Ehrenreich, Gary Rivlin & IPS.
This project will find new ways to approach the coverage of poverty and economic hardship: Just telling compelling stories of individuals and families isn’t enough. We will link these stories to the larger economic picture, including the current attack on the traditional guarantors of economic security -- government and trade unions; extreme- and deepening- inequality; and the decline of the middle class.
The Economic Hardship Reporting Project, led by best-selling investigative journalist Barbara Ehrenreich and the Institute for Policy Studies, places this country’s crisis of poverty and economic insecurity at the center of the national political conversation. Unemployed, underemployed and anxiously employed Americans need to know that they are not alone, that the current economic crisis is not their fault and that they are not always getting the information they need to find solutions.
