Zero Hunger Summer Seminar Session IV: The Policy-Making Process

Academy, Updates, Zero Hunger

This Friday, July 17, from 9am — 1 pm ET, we will host the fourth of five sessions of our 2020 Zero Hunger Summer Seminars. This year's Summer Seminars are held entirely online, and are free and open to the public.

This Friday we will finish our conversation about root causes of global hunger by focusing on smallholder farmers. Next, we will learn about the federal response to COVID-19 and how the CARES act has impacted employment and poverty in the United States. Finally, you will get to meet with Congressional staffers and ask them about their work, their role in the policy making process, and their career paths. Come prepared with questions for our speakers! Sign up here for link to the webinar, pre-reading, and full agenda.
