In Their Own Words

Concerned citizens on what’s at stake in the budget debate

  • “When you have a key that you can put in the door, it gives you a chance to control your destiny.”Veteran Almon


Your generous support of Our American Story, a storyteller action network, helps us protect human needs programs and lay the groundwork for proactive policies that invest in vulnerable families.Through storytelling, we show how policy impacts real families and communities around the country and remind our leaders that poverty doesn’t have one face or take just one form.

With your help, we can raise our collective voice in support of a strong safety net and do more to help struggling families and communities get back on their feet. Your donation will help Half in Ten and the Coalition on Human Needs continue to provide a critical resource to advocates, policymakers, and the press, working to reduce poverty and expand economic oportunity for all Americans. Donations will be collected by the Center for American Progress Action Fund.
