On March 16, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson declared a War on Poverty in America. His answer? Create large-scale national programs aimed at helping the poor and needy that consumed nearly 1.2 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP).

We can remake America!
The road ahead will not be easy. We must fight — are you prepared to fight? Consider these words from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
