On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
As long as there has been poverty, there have been people trying to end it. In D.C., Maryland and Virginia there are more than 14,000 nonprofits aimed at easing the strain of poverty or eliminating it all together. Yet, the problem stubbornly remains. We explore what poverty looks like in our region, and why — despite countless man hours, thousands of mission-based organizations, and billions of dollars– poverty still exists in our region.
