Building Community: Jessica Posner at TEDxMileHigh

When a problem presents itself, do you stand by and watch it happen or do you tackle it head on? For humanitarian Jessica Posner, the answer is simple: do something about it. As a twenty-five year old, Jessica went to live in one of Africa's largest slums, a place no foreigner had ever taken up residence, and co-founded an organization that combats extreme poverty and gender inequality. In this jaw-dropping talk, Jessica tells about risking comfort and safety, tackling issues head-on, and bringing passion to do good for others. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
