The Coalition on Human Needs

 |  NCR Today

Check out the Coalition on Human Needs. They report regularly on current topics like the children at the border, unemployment insurance, tax extenders, appropriations, and Rep. Paul Ryan’s Poverty Plan.

Additionally, they publish Voices for Human Needs, a blog about topics like transportation equity and minimum wage workers juxtaposed to their employers.

Of course, they also provide thoughtful letters you can send to the President and Congress at the touch of a button.

But most important, I’ve come to value the Coalition on Human Needs as a resource for my own writing and a guide to smart strategies for social change.
