SPUR Young Urbanists: Doing good through economic activism
"How do we harness our economic power for change? Patronizing businesses and services whose practices coincide with our political or social values is one effective way. We will speak with three organizations that reinforce "good" behavior by encouraging educated commerce, microlending and philanthropy. Join us to learn more about how you can use your buying power more effectively. With a representative from Kiva.org, Brent Schulkin from Carrotmob and Daniel Kaufman from the One Percent Foundation. This event is generously sponsored by the Koret Foundation."
