In his address to Congress in January 1935, Roosevelt called for three major goals: improved use of national resources, security against old age, unemployment and illness, and slum clearance, as well as a national welfare program (the WPA) to replace state relief efforts. How was it different from the first New Deal? The image is of a migrant mother taken in California in MArch 1935.
