Freedom from poverty is a human right, and the realization of this freedom requires a comprehensive vision and plan. To that end, Heartland Alliance has created the From Poverty to Opportunity Campaign: Realizing Human Rights in Illinois to bring together a broad range of residents from the most affected communities throughout the state as well as advocates and policy leaders to develop and advocate for a poverty elimination strategy anchored to human rights standards that will reduce extreme poverty in Illinois by half by the year 2015.
The Commission on the Elimination of Poverty has released its plan - Building a Pathway to Dignity & Work: A Plan to Cut Extreme Poverty in half by 2015 in Illinois
