Changing the Face of Hunger
Changing the Face of HungerAmbassador Tony Hall talks about his book, "Changing the Face of Hunger," at a symposium hosted by the Social Action Summer Institute in Dayton, Ohio. He discusses what he has learned and experienced during his humanitarian efforts and his travels to 115 nations. Furthermore, he describes his battle against world hunger and explains that his faith has motivated him in fighting this battle. Mr. Hall argues that hunger and poverty are non-partisan issues and suggests that liberals and conservatives work together to create legislation to end world hunger.Tony Hall represented Ohio from 1979 to 2003 in the U.S. House of Representatives. During his tenure in Congress, Rep. Hall's primary focus was addressing hunger around the world. He made frequent trips to more than 100 countries where hunger was widespread. He was chairman of the Select Committee on Hunger from 1989 to 1993. When the committee was abolished, Hall fasted for 22 days in protest.
