BTS producer Ameera David reports from Anacostia, the backyard of the nation's capital. It's a part of Washington D.C. seldom seen by the public eye, and it sheds a light on many communities in DC which are experiencing the highest rate of poverty in 30 years. But ironically, these also happen to be the communities overlooked by the lawmakers who are just steps away. This is "taxation without representation" at its finest.

Washington County addresses Intergenerational Poverty using Mentors WASHINGTON COUNTY, Utah - While Utah is currently enjoying a higher level of employment, poverty continues to be challenging. Utah’s Lt. Governor Spencer Cox created an Intergenerational Poverty Committee, or IGP, two years ago, to address how to handle the recurring problem from generation to generation. Lt. Gov. Cox asked counties to put together a plan to address issues related to it. The goal is to reduce the number of Utah families in the cycle of poverty. Washington County’s IGP Committee is using middle class mentors and education, hoping to change the trend of the families impacted.

Today our host Jorge Nestoro speaks with Anna Speer of the Anna E. Casey Foundation about the fact that increasingly numbers of children are living in extreme poverty in the United States. According to official statistics, in 2008, 18 % lived below below the official poverty line and now this figure has climbed to 22% .

"Don't fall in." For over a century, the Anacostia has been a dumping site for numerous kinds of toxic waste and raw sewage. As its shores border neighborhoods hit hard by poverty, authorities have until now shown little interest in addressing its extreme pollution. A new and long overdue project to divert its waters and prevent waste overflow, however, could also force out the residents who have had to live with the Anacostia's filth for decades.
According to a Bloomberg report, Washington, DC now has a higher median income than San Jose, home to Silicon Valley. Isolated from the rest of the nation's woes, federal employees enjoyed over $120K in salary and benefits in 2010. A driving factor is the lobbying industry on K Street, which is even giving Wall St. a run for its money. The Beltway also attracts a disproportionate amount of high-salaried lawyers. There is one for every 12 people in the district.

Washington DC is the most powerful capital city in the world. But its also a city that is deeply divided between a wealthy and extremely influential minority and an impoverished and largely disenfranchised African-American majority. The seat of global power is also home to a population that remains largely invisible to the politicians, journalists, lawyers, lobbyists, and contractors around Capitol Hill. This other Washington, DC maintains the dubious distinction of having the highest rate of child poverty, the highest mortality rate from HIV/AIDS and the lowest life expectancy in the country. Kike Arnal discusses his new book of photography, In The Shadow of Power.
