RADNOR, Pa. (April 8, 2011) — Former U.S. Ambassador and three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Tony Hall will speak at Cabrini on Monday, April 11, 2011, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Grace Hall Atrium. Since March 28, Hall has been on a fast to focus public attention on the potential effects that could result from the proposed cuts by Congress to domestic and international anti-poverty and hunger programs.
Joining Hall will be Jim Wallis (president and CEO of Sojourners), David Beckmann (president of Bread for the World) and Ritu Sharma (president of Women Thrive Worldwide). Hall is executive director of the Alliance to End Hunger, is former Ambassador to the U.N. Agencies for Food and Agriculture, and was a member of the House of Representatives for 24 years.
In 1993, Hall fasted for 22 days to protest the elimination of the House Select Committee on Hunger, which he had chaired. Hall will visit Cabrini to hear about the College’s work on behalf of the poor and vulnerable, and to participate in a larger explanation of social justice.
