DC area chapter of the national Social Welfare Action Alliance

In light of the fact that funding for TANF expires in September 2002, SWAA has launched a national Teach-In Campaign targeted to ending poverty not welfare. The series of teach-ins replaces the SWAA national conference for 2002. Since the internet has become a powerful source of information and a useful organizing tool, SWAA compiled but has not screened, this list of web sites.
