What You Need to Know

David is working in new ways for political and spiritual change to move us out of the pandemic in a way that includes progress against hunger and poverty. Right now, he is working to elect Joe Biden and defeat Trumpism. This website and his social media accounts are about current opportunities to change the politics of poverty. And he continues to do some work for Bread for the World and the Alliance to End Hunger.  


As president of Bread for the World 1991-2020, David led millions of people in successful advocacy with Congress. He was awarded the World Food Prize for his contribution to the world’s progress against hunger.  David sees the liberation of hundreds of millions of people from poverty over the last generation as an experience of our loving God and an invitation to do our part.
