Responsibility for All America
Joel Berg is CEO of Hunger Free America, which has been called one of the leading direct service and advocacy organizations on hunger and poverty in the nation. Joel is a nationally and internationally recognized expert on US politics, hunger, poverty, food, volunteerism, and nutrition. Joel will use humor and hard facts to discuss how all Americans are responsible for the nation’s declining middle class, surging poverty, and imperiled democratic institutions; and how all of us are responsible for fixing them by requiring concrete, specific actions from all Americans to make ourselves accountable for the success of the entire nation.
