About this Item

xvi, 239, [1] pages. Occasional footnotes. Foreword by Valerie Harper. Gift inscription, not from author, on fep. Sam Daley-Harris is the founder of RESULTS. Since 1980, RESULTS has identified and advocated for effective solutions to the causes of poverty and worked successfully to increase political will and funding for these solutions through powerful citizen action. In 1995 Daley-Harris initiated the Microcredit Summit Campaign, which surpassed its initial goal of reaching 100 million of the world's poorest families with microloans in 2007. Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus said: ".no other organization has been as critical a partner in seeing to it that microcredit is used as a tool to eradicate poverty and empower women than RESULTS and the Microcredit Summit Campaign." Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break Between People and Government, according to President Jimmy Carter "provides a road map for global involvement in planning a better future." Most of us don't believe we play a part in the decisions made by our government, and this feeling of impotence has led to years of public apathy. Reclaiming Our Democracy brings to the fore a unique vision to meet this crisis: ordinary people taking extraordinary action, becoming citizen leaders in order to create a democracy. The story is told through the inspiring action of RESULTS, an international grassroots citizens' lobby committed to healing the break between people and government, and creating the political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty. RESULTS has played a leading advocacy role in campaigns that have dramatically increased global immunization rates, saving the lives of millions of children, and produced a revolution in banking--microcredit--which is providing tiny, life-changing loans to millions of the world's poorest people. Reclaiming Our Democracy is for anyone who wants to learn how to make a difference. It's an operator's manual for citizens. Bookseller Inventory # 31303
