2016 PUBLIC POLICY IN ACTION
Our 2016 Public Policy Legislative Agenda “United Against Poverty”, is a key strategy in our new Blueprint for Prosperity which serves to advance our objectives to eradicate poverty and to assist those on the cusp of poverty or ALICE---Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. ALICE is a term to describe residents across Louisiana who are working hard, yet still struggling to make ends meet. ALICE has low-paying jobs, little or no savings, and is one emergency from falling into poverty. Our “United Against Poverty” Public Policy Agenda reaffirms UWSELA’s positions previously taken in the 2014 and 2015 Louisiana Legislative Sessions. We hope it encourages others to focus on public policy and adopt the Blueprint for Prosperity, our poverty eradication agenda.Together we can educate and empower people to help lift them out of poverty. We can create a stronger, better Louisiana.
