Welfare, Scapegoating & Human Rights

Program #ROSL001. Recorded in New York, NY on February 26, 1997.

This program is a provocative analysis that answers the question of why welfare reform is a national obsession and why so many middle-class people who are only a paycheck away from poverty participate in dismantling the very safety net they might need. According to international law and the UN, human rights and welfare are closely connected.

Recorded at the Urban Justice Center.
