You may have seen the headlines — the United States experienced a sharp drop in child poverty rates over the past three decades, due in large part to expansions in the social safety net. But for the millions of children still living in poverty, we haven’t gone far enough. The U.S. has higher child poverty rates than most other industrialized nations, despite being one of the richest countries in the world. And for researchers at the Institute for Child, Youth, and Family Policy (ICYFP), this challenge is inextricably linked to racial and ethnic equity.
