WHO IS MIA BIRDSONG? ——————————————————————
Mia is a pathfinder, community curator and storyteller who steadily engages the leadership and wisdom of people experiencing injustice to chart new visions of American life. She has a gift for making visible and leveraging the brilliance of everyday people so that our collective gifts reach larger spheres of influence, cultural and political change, and create well-being for everyone.

As a global community, we all want to end poverty. Mia Birdsong suggests a great place to start: Let’s honor the skills, drive and initiative that people bring to the struggle every day. She asks us to look again at people in poverty: They may be broke — but they’re not broken.
