Landesa Lunch + Learn: Law, Land and Global Poverty
Come learn about one of the most effective and transformative tools in addressing the root causes of global poverty.

Join Landesa CEO Chris Jochnick and a rotating panel of international law and development experts for an inspiring, informative, and engaging discussion on the role law and land play in empowering millions of families around the world.

“When ordinary people have a say in their own future, then your land can’t just be taken away from you. And that's why reforms must ensure that the people of this nation can have that most fundamental of possessions — the right to own the title to the land on which you live and on which you work.” — Barack Obama
