Pat LaMarche is a journalist and broadcaster. Her area of expertise is politics and poverty issues. Both issues are inextricably linked. Her experiences working with the nation's poor make her uniquely suited to answer tough questions about how welfare, social services, inadequate education and society’s other challenges affect the economy and the nation as well. As a journalist and award-winning broadcaster Pat spent more than two decades studying and reporting on poverty issues both in the U.S. and abroad. During her 2004 Green Party Campaign for U.S. Vice President, Pat took to the streets to uncover the lives of the homeless, the Left Out Tour, as she traveled the nation living in homeless shelters and on the streets. The book she wrote about those experiences is called, Left Out in America: the State of Homelessness in the United States. Pat has spent three years working with the homeless of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania directing shelter operations and community outreach. Much of her writing is available through the Huffington Post www.huffingtonpost.com/pat-lamarche
Pat’s new book, Daddy, What’s a Middle Class? Is due out this spring.
