Mary O’Hara launches new anti-poverty multi-platform initiative

Mary O Hara, author of Austerity Bites, has launched Project Twist-It - a brand new anti-poverty multi-platform initiative aiming to shift the negative rhetoric around poverty in the UK and the US.

Supported by the non-profit Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the project aims to change the narrative around poverty through storytelling and by working with artists and writers to elevate the voice of people with lived experience of poverty.  Over the next nine months video, audio, blogs, podcasts, animation, real-world events and much more will go live to counter the stigma associated with poverty.
