Event Details

Thomas A. Nazario, Professor, University of San Francisco, School of Law; Author Living on a Dollar A Day: The Lives and Faces of the World's Poor; Founder & President, The Forgotten International

People often spend too much time discounting one proposal aimed at tackling a problem in order to shore up or push another. As with many of the world's great problems, however, there is no silver bullet that will resolve them all, but advocates insist that solutions do exist. After traveling around the world and visiting with some of the world's poor, Nazario, author of Living on a Dollar a Day: The Lives and Faces of the World's Poor, will present some strategies he believes can help to end a great deal of the poverty and suffering presently experienced by one-sixth of the world's people. Nazario’s expertise lies in the area of children’s rights and global poverty. He has testified before Congress and appeared on many national television and radio shows, including “Oprah” and “The Larry King Show.”
