Reclaiming Our Democracy: An Evening on Civic Engagement and Community Advocacy with Sam Daley-Harris

Activist and author Sam Daley-Harris has helped thousands of ordinary citizens transform from hopelessness into extraordinarily powerful advocates.
This fall, Mr. Daley-Harris released the 20th anniversary edition of Reclaiming Our Democracy, his seminal classic on the topic of community engagement and advocacy. In it he 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. He joins Witnesses to Hunger on Tuesday, November 19th to discuss his experiences and engage in dialogue about community-based work at Drexel University.

Tuesday, November 19th
