OUR SHOW TUESDAY, noon-2:00PM will feature Part 2 of our look at the morphing of the “war on poverty” to the War on the Poor.

Our featured guest is Maria Foscarinis. Maria is Founder and Executive Director of the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, a not-for-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. that serves as the legal arm of the national movement to end homelessness. She was a primary architect of the McKinney-Vento Act, the first major federal legislation addressing homelessness, and has led successful litigation to secure the legal rights of homeless persons. Ms. Foscarinis writes regularly about legal and policy issues affecting homeless and poor persons, and is frequently in national and local media. She is a graduate of Columbia University School of Law, Columbia University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and Barnard College.
