The current poverty rate in America is staggering, and the future is bleak. This film takes a closer look at the research from Dr. Ron Haskins and Dr. Isabel Sawhill that outlines a three-step process towards changing the tide in America: ED. WORK. WED. The film focuses it's attention on Amarillo Texas, a rural hub of the Texas Panhandle. We speak with educators, pastors, students, and community leaders about what poverty looks like in their hometown. The data is harsh, but the opportunity is real. The film is not a political statement but a rally cry for our communities to step up for their neighbors. There is hope and it resides in each and every one of us.
