    Poverty is a persistent, pernicious social problem in the United States. The population that is most affected by poverty because of political/legal anomie is children. This session explores how children’s lives are impacted by, among other poverty-related risks, instability of housing, child welfare and foster care, compromised physical and mental health, inability to access quality education, juvenile justice, immigration status, and environmental justice. Panelists will share their unique and cutting-edge scholarship and experiences in one or more of these areas related to children and poverty.
