On Wednesday, July 8 at 9am our first guest was Sarah Tucker of the Borgen Project which believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. They’re working to make poverty a focus of our U.S. foreign policy.

Our second guest was Veronica Pelicaric. She’s the Campaign Nonviolence training coordinator and the co-author of the book, Engaging Nonviolence: Activating Nonviolent Change In Our Lives and Our World. She has led Pace e Bene nonviolence workshops in Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Argentina, Haiti, Australia, Britain, and the Netherlands. A Zen Buddhist, she is conversant in six languages and lives in Montreal, Canada. She’ll be teaching a six week course titled Applying Meditation for Nonviolent Living starting July 14.
