Building an inclusive economy requires changing the structures and policies that trap more than one billion people in extreme poverty around the world – and fuel poverty and inequality right here in the United States. Learn about how these structures intertwine from the East Bay to Ethiopia and how we can build an economy that works for all.

Andrew represents Jubilee in policy meetings with the White House, Congress, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations. He serves on steering committees at the United Nations and with the Financial Accountability and Corporate Transparency Coalition. Andrew’s views on poverty and economic policy appear in news outlets including Al Jazeera, Pacifica Radio, Common Dreams and The Washington Free Beacon.
Jubilee USA is a coalition of 550 US faith communities and 75 national organizations working with 50 global Jubilee partners. Jubilee USA promotes debt, tax and trade policies to end poverty and solve financial crisis. Our efforts build an economy that serves, protects and promotes participation of the vulnerable.
