Earlier this week, we participated in a march from the Department of the Interior to the White House -- a direct response to the recent Gulf Coast oil spill (and the history of dirty energy accidents).
"My father was born by a river bed and left to die. My mother grew up in extreme poverty. They made it. I am their story, they inspire me!" These are the words of my new friend Rudo, an amazing young woman from Zimbabwe who has come through so much and has now been chosen to be one of a thousand ambassadors of the Make Poverty History Road Trip who next week are acting to make history.
