800,000 Alabamians, including 256,000 children, live in poverty.
You can help your students understand how poverty in Alabama affects their neighbors – and their entire community – by incorporating Alabama Possible’s 2020 Barriers to Prosperity Data Sheet into your coursework.
Please join us next Wednesday, June 24, at 10 a.m. for the second part of our Break It Down discussion series.
This interactive discussion will feature Dr. Laurel Hitchcock, associate professor of social work at UAB; Stephanie Nettles, AP government teacher at Shelby County High School; and Mae Whiting, data and research manager at Alabama Possible.
