MONDAY AFTERNOON: THE GLOBAL MARSHALL PLAN 1-3pm , 1405 Curtis, Curtis Hotel
Led by Rabbi Michael Lerner, Congressman Keith Ellison, Sharon Salzberg, and Rev. Tony Campolo
We have been trying to achieve national security for the past five thousand years by dominating others and that has brought us to our current state of affairs. We are at a time when we desperately need to realize the value of each individual and eliminate the unnecessary poverty, homelessness, inadequate healthcare and inadequate education that people experience domestically and globally. By committing 1-2% of our GDP for the next twenty years, we can help uplift all people and demonstrate our care for all beings and make our country safer.
Michael and Congressmen Keith Ellison will elaborate on the ideas behind a Global Marshall Plan and talk about what this world would look like if we embraced this idea.
