Quote of the Day: John Podesta
"By 2030, we can eradicate extreme poverty.
This is not a hollow platitude. The generations living today are the first in human history that could eliminate extreme deprivation and hunger. It is critical that all nations strive to meet this goal. Not only for our own security, though we know that a more prosperous world is more stable, but because ending extreme poverty is the right thing to do."
—John Podesta, Center for American Progress founder, former chief of staff for President Bill Clinton, counselor to President Barack Obama
Podesta will be one of the speakers at Bread for the World's 2014 National Gathering, "Bread Rising: Working Together to End Hunger by 2030." To see a full list of speakers, and to register, visit www.bread.org/40.
