Greg Kaufmann is a senior fellow with the Poverty to Prosperity Program at American Progress and the editor of TalkPoverty.org. Previously, he was the poverty correspondent for The Nation. Melissa Harris-Perry called him “one of the most consistent voices on poverty in America.” Through his weekly column, “This Week in Poverty,” Greg sought to increase media coverage of poverty, share new research, elevate the voices of people living in poverty, and offer readers opportunities to get involved with organizations working to eradicate poverty. BillMoyers.com syndicated his column, and it won a 2012 Media Award from the National Association of Social Workers and the 2013 Cameron Duncan Media Award from RESULTS.
Greg has spoken at numerous poverty-related conferences and has been a guest on MSNBC, PBS, NPR, and radio talk shows across the United States. His work has also been featured on “Moyers & Company,” CBSNews.com, NPR.org, WashingtonPost.com, and BusinessInsider.com. Greg serves on the board of Mary House in Washington, D.C. Prior to his work as a reporter, his favorite job was as education director for the Westside Boys and Girls Club in Columbus, Ohio.
Greg graduated from Dickinson College and studied creative writing at Miami University in Ohio. He lives in his hometown of Washington, D.C., with his wife, son, and two daughters.
