Poverty-Free Chattanooga Meetings Begin
Chattanooga Organized for Action is working to reduce poverty in the area with a new campaign, Poverty-Free Chattanooga. The group wants community input and seeks to work with city and county officials on social inequality. Twenty-seven percent of residents live below the poverty line, and 42% of children live in poverty, which is twice the national average, according to a report cited by Perrin Lance, the group's leader. Lance joins us for an interview. In early August, the group began having monthly meetings with the public.
