Tom Nazario at the World Affairs Council in San Francisco

Tom Nazario at the World Affairs Council in San FranciscoTom Nazario made a presentation to a full house at the San Francisco World Affairs Council entitled, “Global Poverty: What Everyone Needs to Know.” The Council posted the following description: “More than one billion people today live on just one dollar per day. Those who live at this level of poverty often work extremely hard at jobs few in the West would even entertain. They lack basic services such as healthcare and education, a deficit that all too often keeps them and their families stuck in a continuous poverty cycle, often for generations. Professor Thomas Nazario, founder of The Forgotten International, will discuss what he calls ‘the forgotten people of the world’. Often they are those who live in abject poverty, often they are women and children and often they have absolutely no access to any kind of real power or influence. How can one bring more attention to these issues? And what, if anything, can be done to solve global poverty?” Thank you to everyone at the WAC for hosting this important talk.
