    In March 2018, The LGBTQ Poverty Initiative released its report, Intersecting Injustice: A National Call to Action: Addressing LGBTQ Poverty and Economic Justice for All. The report notes that “contrary to the gay affluence myth perpetuated by the mainstream media, LGBTQ people disproportionately struggle with poverty.” This is true across a variety of measures, and on each of those LGBTQ people of color fare worse than their White counterparts. This program brings together people working-–inside the academy and out—on legal and policy issues concerning poverty in LGBTQ communities.
