Good morning Advocate,
I invite you to a webinar hosted by the Coalition on Human Needs entitled Wake-Up Call to the Nation: How to Use the New Poverty and Health Insurance Data next Thursday, September 8 from 1:00 - 2:15 pm.

On September 13, the Census Bureau will publish its annual survey of poverty, income, and health insurance coverage, including national and some state data for 2010. Then on September 22 a wealth of state and local Census survey data will be released. Last year, we learned the number of low income people shot up by 7.1 million from 2006 to 2009, that the number of people with private health coverage continued to plummet, and that one-third of our nation were either poor or near poor. Few expect improvement this year.
This new data should wake us up to the need to rebuild our economy and protect our neighbors and people in need. It’s hard to think of a time when the nation’s needs and the decision-makers’ nostrums were farther apart. The facts of September can help build the demand for real solutions.
This webinar can help you be an educator and an alarm-sounder. You’ll learn the best predictions about what the data will show. You’ll get a practical guide to finding and using the data quickly and accurately. And you’ll learn how the stories the data tell can help us fight the cuts threatened in Washington and in Ohio.
Arloc Sherman, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities: He has decades of experience mining Census data to reveal powerful truths about the impact of poverty.
Deborah Weinstein, Coalition on Human Needs: Census data jockey who will guide you straight to the data you need.
Please forward this to colleagues or volunteers to help us engage more people in your network!
