FAI Event: A Conversation with Sam Daley-HarrisBy FAI
Most people see working to end global poverty and ensure a stable climate as a fool’s errand. Add to that the Citizens United decision and the flood of money rushing into politics and the despair grows deeper. But activist and author Sam Daley-Harris has helped thousands of ordinary citizens transform from hopelessness into extraordinarily powerful advocates. In the 20th anniversary edition of Reclaiming Our Democracy released in the fall of 2013, Daley-Harris shares how he and the citizen advocacy organizations he has founded (RESULTS and the Microcredit Summit Campaign) or coached (Citizens Climate Lobby) have been leading change-makers in three global movements: 1) microfinance, 2) child survival, and 3) climate change. Join FAI's Jonathan Morduch and Sam Daley-Harris for a discussion about changemaking, poverty alleviation, and citizen engagement in our democracy.
