What's it like for children growing up poor?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about increasing number of children who are living in poverty. According to US Census Bureau 16.4 million children live in poverty. So what is the day-to-day reality of young people living below the poverty line? Join us live at 10 or send an email to feedback@yourcallradio.org. What are the long term effects of poverty on children? And how they could be fixed? It's Your Call, with Shirin Sadeghi, and you.
