Poverty is a non partisan issue
As we approach the general election, Rich Stearns, president of World Vision U.S., poses a challenge to both presidential candidates: Make the poor a priority.
On the World Vision blog, Rich discusses the lack of conversation from presidential candidates on the issue of poverty at home and abroad. Says Rich:
“As voters, I think we need to consider not only how a candidate’s policies would affect us personally, but also how they would help the poor. While there are a number of issues for voters to weigh in on during this election — from foreign policy to economic recovery — it is a shame that our national leaders have nothing to say about our responsibility to the growing number of people in poverty.”
