Kathy Edin’s work shapes Presidential Initiative

Dr. Kathy Edin’s (along with her co-author Luke Schaefer) book “$2.00 A Day: Living on Almost Nothing In America” was a major influence in President Obama’s proposed initiative, The Emergency Aid and Service Connection, to help those in extreme poverty with short-term aid for emergencies.  The article detailing the proposal can be found at the Huffington Post.
