Youth representing DAWG at the US Social Forum

Poor people in West Virginia organizing for positive change and economic justice.

DAWG is a grassroots statewide organization consisting of welfare moms, low wage workers, and people in poverty in one of the poorest states in America, West Virginia. Over the years this group has been able to stop cuts to the state’s child care program, school clothing voucher program, and to public transportation. As well as, helping hundreds of individual families in need.

DAWG is a well respected group not only in West Virginia but on a national level as well. They are currently working with Union Theological Seminary’s Poverty Initiative and the National Center for Law and Economic Justice to ensure that poor Appalachian’s have a voice in the national arena.

DAWG is one of many such poor people’s organizations throughout the United States that are fighting an uphill battle to end poverty and just survive on a daily basis.

It takes more then food baskets at Thanksgiving and presents at Christmas to make a change. It takes everyone standing up together and saying Enough! Join with DAWG to stand up and fight the injustices perpetrated on America’s poor families who are struggling everyday to make ends meet.
