This weekend, many Americans will celebrate the Fourth of July, participating in historical reenactments, holiday parades, and, of course, fireworks. We want to celebrate America by highlighting its promising future leaders – the extraordinary children of the members of Witnesses to Hunger.


Witnesses to Hunger participants from Boston trudged through the snow and slush to Boston’s City Hall and the Massachusetts State House last week to do what they do best – educate and advocate.


This past Tuesday, I attended the President’s State of the Union address as the guest of Senator Robert Casey, Jr.   It was an experience I won’t forget.  I was honored to be there to represent all Americans who live with and try to break the cycle of poverty, including those in my community.
