This series of fact sheets highlights conditions facing the 140 million poor and low-income people in the United States.
Included is a national fact sheet and state-specific fact sheets all 50 states and Washington, D.C., because these tens of millions of people live in every region, state and county of the country, confronting the unnecessary injustices of poverty and economic insecurity, systemic racism, the denial of health care, ecological devastation, wealth inequality and rampant militarism every day.*
The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival is using this information to organize across the nation to: reveal the truth of these injustices, change the narrative and build our power.
Fight poverty, not the Poor!
These files were created to print. For the best outcome, print on 11×17 paper and fold in half. The side saying “[STATE] FACT SHEET 2023” should be on the top page, when folded.
* These resources draw on the most comprehensive and current publicly available data through May 2023. Where possible, data is disaggregated to reflect the complex reality of the interrelated injustices contained in this document. Unfortunately, there are significant gaps in racial, ethnic and other demographic data, reflecting gaps in data collection and statistical methodologies, which the Poor People’s Campaign cannot control. We continue to push for improvements to fill these gaps.
