Lecture April 20: The power of everyday people

the school opening in Las Minitas

On April 20, in honor of Earth Week Activism Day, I will be speaking about the school we built my Friends Project grassroots effort and the ability we all have to make an impact.

Join us at the State University of New York, Bailey 203, starting at 2PM.

"The power of one: Want change? Do it yourself." In 2014, Kris Dreessen set out on a journey around the world to prove the power everyday people have to make a difference. Learn about how she crowd-funded to build a school in Nicaragua and empowers others with small grants through her grassroots, word of mouth organization. Meet the people she met in Australia, Africa and beyond whose stories demonstrate how one act can change everything.
