In an exhibit designed to charge emotions and insight action, award-winning Time Magazine photojournalist, Steve Liss, together with other notable photojournalists, chronicles the plight of regional poverty in modern-day America in "In Our Own Backyard: U.S. Poverty in the 21st Century,"

Over the next year, Catholic Charities USA will launch "In Our Own Backyard: U.S. Poverty in the 21st Century" in nine exhibits throughout the country, with each exhibit reflecting the face of poverty from the immediate region.
A poverty awareness project undertaken by American photojournalists, "In Our Own Backyard: U.S. Poverty in the 21st Century" is designed to inspire dialog on poverty – and ultimately help make poverty reduction a national priority – by pairing the visual power of documentary photography with the persuasive power of the human story.
The thousands of images captured by the photojournalists, along with video and oral histories, are available for use by qualifying organizations working to advance social justice and economic rights.
