Community Shares Joins Discussion of Child Poverty in Greater Cincinnati

 

Community Shares was asked by WKRC Cincinnati Local 12 to join in their coverage of the crisis of child poverty in Greater Cincinnati. We welcomed the opportunity to offer a perspective that is often missing in mainstream coverage: the realities of the institutional and systemic causes of poverty. Community Shares CEO Michelle Dillingham was interviewed at length to help shed light on the local organizations that have been long working to build economic equity in our city. See their coverage at these links below:
