Nicholas D. Kristof, a journalist and human rights activist, will be the first speaker featured in CitySquare’s new speaker series Up Close with CitySquare. The series is designed to share the experiences of influential people fighting against poverty.
Kristof is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and a columnist for The New York Times who has traveled to over 150 countries. His journey to places like China, Africa, and India gave him first-hand experiences with global health and poverty around the world.
His recent book, A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity, shows accounts of people around the globe who are working to end poverty. His message, much like CitySquare’s mission, advocates for people to get involved to transform the lives of others.
The breakfast event will be on March 19 at 7 a.m. It will be hosted in SMU’s Martha Pollock Mack Grand Ballroom.
