New York, NY (January 7, 2014). Tomorrow is the 50th Anniversary of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s declaration of the “War on Poverty.” To mark the occasion, Legal Momentum has issued a report assessing the progress that has been made since that time.
Legal Momentum called on President Obama today to veto any farm bill containing additional cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. “Enough is enough,” said Elizabeth L. Grayer, Legal Momentum’s President. “Between the $400 million worth of annual cuts to SNAP in the Senate bill that passed last summer, and the additional $5 billion cut in the current fiscal year alone that took effect automatically last month, working people are already giving much more than their fair share.”
Legal Momentum is pleased to announce the release of its newest model curriculum, Medical Forensic Sexual Assault Examinations: What Are They and What Can They Tell the Courts?, created by Legal Momentum’s award-winning National Judicial Education Program with generous support from the Walter and Phyllis Borten Family Foundation and the Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women.
