ARC researcher and ColorLines journalist Seth Wessler joined Carmen Cordero of Vecinos Unidos, Irasema Garza of Legal Momentum, and Wanda Fossett of Community Voices Heard on GRITtv to discuss food stamps, poverty and why this might be the best opportunity we have to rebuild the social safety net. Seth profiled the work and experience of Carmen and Vecinos Unidos in his in-depth investigation published last week on ColorLines.com, “Selling Food Stamps for Kids’ Shoes.” Research support was provided by The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute.
