We can end hunger in America now, all we need is the political will | Jim McGovern


TEDx Talks

Published on Oct 21, 2014

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Hunger isn’t just in the developing world – it’s affecting 50 million people right here in the United States, in our cities and neighborhoods. 17 million of those hungry are kids. This is unacceptable, especially since it’s an issue that can be solved. All we need is the political will to end hunger now.

Since his election in 1996, Congressman Jim McGovern has been widely recognized as a tenacious advocate for his district, a tireless crusader for change, and an unrivaled supporter for social justice and fundamental human rights. Currently serving his ninth term in Congress, McGovern serves as the second ranking Democrat on the powerful House Rules Committee, which sets the terms for debate and amendments on most legislation; and a member of the House Agriculture Committee.
