What Does Poverty Look Like? | Union in Dialogue Blog

A couple weeks ago my good friend Aaron and I were featured the “Union in Dialogue” blog, which is hosted by the Poverty Initiative. The post is about an action we participated in on behalf of the Longshoremen up in Longview, WA. I was honored to be on their blog just because the folks at the Poverty Initiative are some of my heroes, as you can see by how awesome Aaron is:

The most significant lesson I learned from studying and supporting the ILWU’s actions in Longview is this: small towns and rural communities aren’t just at the front lines of economic exploitation– they also have tremendous potential to be the front lines of powerful resistance to this exploitation.
