Growing Up Poor In America

The documentary, "Growing Up Poor in America", follows three children and their families in the battleground state of Ohio as the COVID-19 pandemic amplifies their struggle to stay afloat.
In early 2020, it was estimated that almost 12 million children in America were living in poverty — a burden disproportionately borne by Black and Latino kids. Then came the coronavirus.
Director Jezza Neumann, who made 2012's “Poor Kids,” once again delves into how poverty impacts children.
As the pandemic continues, the presidential election approaches and America reckons with racism, the video offers a powerful look at child poverty in the time of COVID-19 — told from the perspective of the children themselves.
