In DC, we are engaging the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Across the country, nearly 150 synagogues, churches and mosques prayed and acted during Jubilee Weekend (October 10-12) to address inequality and the causes of extreme poverty. In the lead up to these Jubilee Weekend events, National Public Radio's Interfaith Voices aired a 15-minute interview about Jubilee's work on 75 stations. Listen as our executive director Eric LeCompte shares about our work on predatory hedge funds, the IMF, debt, tax, and trade.
Across the United States, Jubilee communities acted on an Ebola epidemic worsened by poor global debt and tax policies. In Washington, the International Business Times, the BBC, El Espectador, Agence France-Presse and the investor publication Value Walk covered our work at the IMF.
We've continued to be a part of the global conversation on stopping predatory financial behavior and preventing financial crisis. At the IMF and World Bank meetings, we organized 4 events and high-level conversations to end extreme poverty and address inequality.
