September Conference Call with Sam Daley-Harris

If you missed September’s Conference Call with Sam Daley-Harris, founder of Results, Inc and author of Reclaiming Our Democracy:  Healing the Break Between People and Government, you can listen to the recording here:

As some of you know, I participated in the RESULTS International Conference in July.  RESULTS is an international citizens’ lobby dedicated to creating the political will to end hunger and poverty.  I am continually amazed by the remarkable work they do in the world, and I am excited to announce that in September our Sister Giant conference call will be with the founder of RESULTS, Sam Daley-Harris.

In addition to founding RESULTS, Sam also founded the Microcredit Summit Campaign, a project of the RESULTS Educational Fund.  In February of 1997, the Microcredit Summit was held in Washington, DC.  The Summit, which was attended by more than 2,900 delegates from 137 countries, launched a campaign to reach 100 million of the world’s poorest families, especially the women of those families, with credit for self-employment and other financial and business services by 2005.   At that first Summit then-US First Lady Hillary Clinton said, “I am thrilled to see such a turnout for this Summit, which is one of the most important gatherings we could have anywhere in our world.”  The goal of reaching 100 million of the world’s poorest families was surpassed in 2007.

Sam Daley-Harris is also the author of Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break Between People and Government, about which Jimmy Carter said, “[Daley-Harris] provides a road map for global involvement in planning a better future.”  The 20th anniversary edition will be released in September 2013.

Our call with Sam will be on Thursday, September 19 at 6pm PT / 9pm ET.
