Do Lunch with Peter Skillern, Nov. 19th

PeterSkillernDoLunch400Join us for a lively lunch with one of Durham’s most creative economic nonprofit leaders. Peter Skillern works to improve economic justice and financial literacy, by working with corporations, policymakers, and community members. He has testified before Congress on issues of fair lending, but he also produces videos like the one below:

Many Duke students rarely see much of the city of Durham the beyond campus and downtown, which means we may tend to think about Durham’s social and economic problems in abstract terms. Peter Skillern knows what economic justice looks like, and he has innovative, multilevel ways of trying to achieve it. As president of Reinvestment Partners, a nonprofit agency that uses social entrepreneurship and advocacy of corporate responsibility to address social inequity, Mr. Skillern works for better economic literacy and policy through classes, political action, and even television soap operas.

Lunch by DaisyCakes will be provided for the first 25 students who RSVP by November 17th at noon.

When: November 19th from noon to 1pm
