How well do we really know the poor? As our nation's economy grows and the jobless rate decreases, are we increasingly ignoring their voices? Haven't we always ignored them?

As a nation, perhaps. But there are those who've made it their life's work to help share the stories of those in need, to fight for economic justice, to not ignore.

This hour we hear personal accounts of living in economic hardship, as well as moral, political, and philosophical arguments in favor of helping.
