CEW is honored to welcome Jo Luck, President and CEO of Heifer International, as the 2007 Mullin Welch speaker. The lecture is Thursday, February 15, 2007 at 4:00 p.m. at the Michigan League. Heifer International, an Arkansas-based nonprofit organization, is dedicated to ending the cycle of chronic hunger and poverty that plagues two-thirds of the planet. Since 1944, when its first shipment of cows left Pennsylvania for Puerto Rico, Heifer International has helped more than 4 million families in 125 countries through gifts of livestock and agricultural training. In remarks entitled "Extraordinary Ordinary People," Jo Luck will share with us her experiences of helping communities to create sustainable small-scale farm enterprises and thus to meet their nutritional, economic, environmental, and social needs. She will also discuss the importance of education, employment, and financial independence to alleviate poverty for future generations. Join us for this special presentation! Free and open to the public.
