SORT BY Relevancy
Farming is one of the best ways for poor people to become self-sufficient, and our guest, Tim Wright, strives to help them make it happen.
Tim Wright is the Executive Director of Sauti Moja, an organization that originated from a desire to help vulnerable women and communities, and local friends seeking support for their ideas to help their communities.
Sauti Moja is focused on improving the lives of the pastoral people of East Africa who are currently struggling to survive the destructive effect discrimination, disease, land loss and drought are having on them. Pastoralism is a complex system of livestock and resource management that is inadequately appreciated by most Western experts. This system is in trouble with more frequent and serious droughts related to global warming.
Sauti Moja links donors to the community initiatives of indigenous people, like the Maasai of Kenya and Tanzania. These initiatives include education of vulnerable girls and children, HIV/AIDS prevention, and providing livestock to widows and single mothers. Local leaders have the power and ability to change their lives, and the organization partners with complementary skills and additional resources to ensure their success.
Tim has a range of technical and management skills acquired over 35+ years of professional experience, including program management in six countries and consulting in eight others. His relief and development expertise was gained through employment with the Government of Canada, Canadian Red Cross, NGOs (World Vision Canada and Food for the Hungry International), and church agencies.

That buzz you hear growing louder by the day originates in East Brunswick, where Rutgers team captain Tim Wright looks to light up his pro day! There are not many wide receivers in this year’s draft class who can compare to his size/speed combination. When watching Wright, you will notice smooth route-running, blended with sharp cutting ability, while displaying leadership qualities that every NFL team looks for in a player. Tune-in to this edition of the NFL Draft Bible Player Spotlight Show as Wright joins host Ric Serritella to discuss his Scarlet Knights experience, how he dealt with various adversities throughout his career and his dedication to the game, which has helped him land on the NFL Draft radar.
ENVISION THIS: Economic and social justice activists sensitive to differences in class cultures
Betsy Leondar-Wright is an economic justice activist, sociologist and author, who writes on class and economic inequality. For nine years she was the Communications Director at United for a Fair Economy, and co-authored UFE's new book The Color of Wealth: The Story Behind the U.S. Racial Wealth Divide. She is currently the Project Director and Senior Trainer at Class Action, a non-profit that raises consciousness about class and money, where she edits the blog “Classism Exposed.” Betsy’s latest of twelve books, Missing Class: Strengthening Social Movement Groups by Seeing Class Cultures, was just published in 2014.
Betsy says, "Often the paid organizers in low-income communities come from professional middle-class backgrounds. I worked as a community organizer for many years, and the class dynamics can be tricky..." From an interview she conducted with Dorian Warren, she quotes,"Don't do things for people, but help them speak for themselves." Understanding the perspective, values, and goals of the people you are working with or trying to organize is so crucial that Betsy's current work focuses on helping activists to form cross-class coalitions in movements for social change
