I spent weeks interviewing poor people in America's poorest big city where nearly 30% live in poverty and another 12% in deep poverty.

I'm more concerned about people going hungry in my own neighborhood than a moment of incivility.

You should be, too.

From my article:
"According to Feeding America, the largest agency in the USA tracking hunger and providing food to the poor, 1 in 8 Americans — 12.5% of the population — is food insecure, which means they are not getting enough to eat. In Philadelphia, that number is 1 in 4.
Also:
"In November, a U.S. Census report found that while the percentage of food-insecure people decreased nationally in 2017, it increased in Philadelphia — to nearly 25 percent of city residents."
Also:
“One in four #LGBTQ people — approximately 2.2 million people — did not have enough money to feed themselves or their families during some period in the last year.”

Please read and share.

People are going hungry in America right now but the president is a billionaire.
