Manifesto for a Moral Revolution

Practices to Build a Better World

Give Courageously.

by David Meyer

Renowned CEO Jacqueline Novogratz offers a heartfelt rallying cry for activism and provides examples of determined men and women who give for others.

Jacqueline Novogratz –  founder and CEO of Acumen, an organization designed to harness entrepreneurship to give everyone “the opportunity to live with dignity” –  pleads with readers to stop what they’re doing, find a cause that will improve the world and act on it – as she did. Novogratz gave up a lucrative Wall Street job to help impoverished women in East Africa. She encountered years of setbacks, threats of jail and violence, and the loss of friends and partners to murder, war and terror. Yet she persevered. Here, she offers moving stories and telling statistics to articulate the urgency for widespread civic action. 

Foreign Policy named Novogratz one of its Top 100 Global Thinkers. The Daily Beast listed her as one of the 25 Smartest People of the Decade and she received the Forbes 400 Lifetime Achievement Award for Social Entrepreneurship.
