Lisa Marchal is one of Indy’s great assets. She’s the Senior Global Grassroots Associate with RESULTS, a grassroots advocacy group committed to creating the political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty. It’s a major job with a national/international organization, but she’s located in Indianapolis, and very much part of the community here. Lisa is giving two talks, both talks for important organizations you ought to get to know.
