The Borgen Project: Ending Global Poverty

Lauren Hartley is a Public Relations and Marketing intern with the Borgen Project. The Borgen Project is a nonprofit that serves as a voice for the world's poor. Lauren is also a full time student at the University of Minnesota, majoring in Communications and Spanish. She grew up in South Minneapolis and is passionate about social justice issues.

The Borgen Project believes that the United States, the wealthiest country in the world, should be doing more to aid extreme global poverty. Less than 1% of the federal budget is spent on international aid. Through advocacy, education, and mobilization, the Borgen Project works to influences congress to pass bills that aid global health and expand the International Affairs budget. Ms. Hartley will present on three of the Borgen Project's main concerns: global poverty and U.S. jobs; poverty and national security; and poverty and overpopulation. Lastly, Ms Hartley will share with us what we can do to help.
