Join MIC, the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, and the Minnesota Chapter of CARE for an evening program with Peter Bell, president of CARE USA, a non-governmental organization and member of CARE International. CARE International is the world's largest private relief and development organization, working in more than 60 developing countries, and one of a handful of NGOs providing humanitarian aid in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Mr. Bell served as Deputy Under Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare during the Carter Administration. He currently co-chairs the Inter-American Dialogue, serves as a trustee of the World Peace Foundation, and is on the board of directors for Human Rights Watch.
In a recent presentation on Afghanistan, Mr. Bell stated, "There's an important role for people to play in advocating humane policies with regard to the Afghan people...who have suffered for far too long, by supporting the U.S. government playing a leading role in funding humanitarian response."
This program is cosponsored by the Minnesota Chapter of CARE, and the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs.
