Living in a state of poverty comes with many other costs. Poverty is a contributing factor to other racial inequities throughout our county, from lack of access to performing schools and healthy food to avoiding pretrial detention. Financial stressors such as court fines and traffic tickets have much greater impact on low-income households than others. Low-income individuals are more likely to turn to predatory lending to cover basic expenses and are less likely to be able to complete their college education. In addition, poverty is well known to negatively impact mental and physical health of people.
