Global Activism: Public policy graduate takes different approach to solving humanitarian problems

After graduating from the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy, Tricia Martinez came to believe that, “policy solutions are not driven by potential impact for the individual or the ability to influence large-scale change, rather they are driven by political agendas.” She wanted to take a different approach to solving some of the world’s biggest humanitarian problems. For Global Activism, Martinez will tell us about her new collaborative project called “Basic Transfer”. It’s a “hybrid social venture with a mission to lift women around the world out of poverty through cash transfers.” (photo: basictransfer.com)
