• 1 in 5 DC Residents Below Poverty Line

    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.

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.

    The United States Census Bureau released its latest survey this week, "Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States. It revealed that median household income declined. The poverty rate was not different from the previous year, but did not go up, as it has since the start of the Great Recession. The numbers of those classified by the government as poor remained at record highs, while the gap between the rich and everyone else widened further. It's a grim story that hasn't received much media coverage. That's why we're here talking about it. Joining me to talk about poverty in America is Lisa Sharon Harper, Director of Mobilizing at Sojourners; and Marisol Bello, a reporter for "USA Today."

Make sure you take a look at the 12 worst places to live in the U.S. before you make any decisions about your next home base. 12. St. Louis, Missouri Over 14% of St. Louis’ population is living below the poverty line. Out of 100,000 residents, every year 35.3 are murdered, which ranks it as one of America’s most dangerous cities too. 11. Reno, Nevada Reno was the gambling capital of the US until Las Vegas was developed and “The Biggest Little City in the World” has been in economic decline ever since. Reno experiences nearly 39 annual crimes per 1,000 residents. 10. Modesto, California Despite being home to the largest winery in the world, the unemployment rate was nearly 13% in 2014. Modesto ranks number one in the country for car theft and out of 200,000 residents, up to 10,000 are reported to be gang members. 9. Oakland, California The economy in Oakland is strong with a good median household income. ($51,683.) However, home to around 50 gangs and a high violent crime rate, Oakland also suffers from high traffic congestion and poor air quality. 190% worse than the national average. 8. New Orleans, Louisiana The “murder capital of the country," also has one of the worst toxic-substance records. New Orleans has still not recovered from Hurricane Katrina, and was ranked number two in “America’s Dirtiest Cities.” 7. Birmingham, Alabama 27.3% of residents live below the poverty line. Out of every 100,000 residents, 1400 are victims of violent crimes due to the prominent drug trade and high poverty rate. 6. Stockton, California In 2012, the city filed for bankruptcy.

Memphis, Tennessee Memphis is the largest city on the Mississippi River with over 20% of its inhabitants living below the poverty line. In Memphis you stand a 1 in 12 chance of being a victim of crime. 4. New Haven, Connecticut Home of Yale University, the surrounding areas of New Haven are impoverished and crime ridden. Nearly 68 crimes occur annually for every 1,000 residents. 3.

The central question that we're wrestling with in this text is how we can get serious in this country about not just reducing but indeed eradicating poverty. There are three things that we're clear about. Number 1, which answers your question, is that poverty has to be made a priority in this country. At the moment it is not a priority, not just for our government but for the American people. Now one out of two Americans are either in poverty or near poverty — that's half the country — so we are hopeful that our government and the American people in this election year will get more vocal about demanding that poverty be a priority. Number 2, there must be a plan to eradicate poverty. We keep coming up with these short-term Band-Aids, like the president's payroll-tax cut. A payroll-tax cut is a decent idea, I guess, but it only works if you're on the payroll in the first place. That's just one example; there are all kinds of presidents who, in years past, have tried to come up with these in-the-moment solutions to poverty. There's got to be a real plan. We're calling in this text for a White House conference. The White House has a conference on everything but poverty, so we're calling to bring all these experts together. Marian Wright Edelman has a plan. Jeffrey Sachs at Columbia has a plan. Catholic Charities has a plan. Thirdly and finally, whoever the next president is needs to get serious about selling the process to the American people for how this will happen. When the numbers are as significant as they are, I am certain that the American people are interested in a plan to get them out of poverty. The more serious that Republicans and Democrats get about that, the better off we're going to be."

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.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AP71gUdg8qQ Martin Luther King tried to broaden the civil rights movement to include economic justice for people of all races. In May 1968, one month after King was killed, 7000 peaceful protesters set up a tent and plywood encampment on the National Mall in Washington DC, calling it "Resurrection City." Photographer Jill Freedman quit her job and joined the Poor People's Campaign, living in Resurrection City and documenting the event with her camera. Resurrection City | a film by Chuck Farris

The United States Census Bureau released its latest survey this week, "Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States. It revealed that median household income declined. The poverty rate was not different from the previous year, but did not go up, as it has since the start of the Great Recession. The numbers of those classified by the government as poor remained at record highs, while the gap between the rich and everyone else widened further. It's a grim story that hasn't received much media coverage. That's why we're here talking about it. Joining me to talk about poverty in America is Lisa Sharon Harper, Director of Mobilizing at Sojourners; and Marisol Bello, a reporter for "USA Today."
