Multidimensional Poverty

FIVE EVILS: MULTIDIMENSIONALPOVERTY AND RACE IN AMERICA

Libraries are not mentioned in this report. However living in a low income are is noted as an evil:

4. LOW-INCOME AREA Living in a high-poverty area puts people at a disadvantage, above and beyond their own household’s income-poverty status, because of local factors like the quality of schools, social capital, job connections, and crime.

Our public libraries and excellent school libraries can help mitigate against this "evil" They should be front and center in this report.
