This final chapter pulls together several concluding observations, themes, and thoughts. In particular, it discusses the ways in which one person can make an important difference in helping to create the fundamental changes necessary if America is to once and for all effectively combat the injustice of poverty. It turns to a wide range of information and research during the course of the book in order to build its arguments. Sources include analyses conducted with various national data sets; information from the U.S. Census Bureau and other government sources; discussions and interviews with those who are living in poverty as well as with individuals who are working on the front lines of poverty; historical material; and the vast array of previous research and writings on this subject.

Keywords: United States; American poverty; poverty reduction; poverty risk
