Join Jubilee USA Network on its End the Debt Crisis Tour as we take action and educate our communities about continued poverty and global inequity. As the debt crisis has moved from the developing world to the developed world, we must continue to forge stronger alliances with activists in the Global South. Our partners from ZIMCODD, an economic justice organization from Zimbabwe, will be coming to Oregon, Massachusetts, Washington D.C. and New York City. The tour will explore the current economic realities in Zimbabwe, how it relates to many nations in the Global South, and the global efforts to implement lasting social justice and transformation through debt cancellation and accountability in the international financial institutions.
