If people are shut out of housing or spending up to 50% of their income on shelter there is little left for food, insurance, transportation and education. This week the National Poor People's Campaign came to Iowa. There was little media attention paid to the visit by Rev. Dr. William Barber II but we were able to visit with him and Steve Roach Knight the movements communication director. Connect the dots with us as he explains what this is all about.
