I Believe In Zero

Caryl Stern, president and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, shares her—and UNICEF’s—mission to reduce the number of preventable deaths of children under 5 from 19,000 each day to zero: zero hunger, zero poverty, and zero disease. Stern, author of I Believe in Zero, offers a call to see the world’s children as our own through firsthand stories of hope, resilience, determination, and family. Each of the stories focuses on a specific locale and weaves together material on the country and its history, its humanitarian crises, and depictions of the people she meets there, all while tracing Stern’s emerging global consciousness.

 

Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Civic series, with Elliott Bay Book Company. Series supported by The Boeing Company Charitable Trust, the True-Brown Foundation and the RealNetworks Foundation. Series media sponsorship by The Stranger and KUOW.
