ONE Panel Forum at HU to Discuss Global Poverty

Date: Wednesday, Feb. 17
Time: 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Location: McGrew Towers, Hampton University

The Hampton University chapter of the NAACP will join with U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott, President of Physicians for Peace Gen. Ron Sconyers, and members of the global anti-poverty organization ONE to discuss the U.S.'s impact in the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease around the world. The forum will take place Feb. 17 at 6 p.m. in HU's McGrew Towers. The event is free and open to the public.

The discussion will focus on the impact of America's development efforts in the poorest countries around the world, the connection between U.S. global anti-poverty initiatives and U.S. security, the ongoing response to last month’s earthquake in Haiti, and why smart development efforts will play an increasingly important part of America’s foreign policy in the years ahead. Shonda Buchanan, assistant professor of English at HU, will serve as panel moderator.
