JB Scherpelz reflects on the History and Meaning of MINN

I don’t know much about current efforts to combat water-borne illnesses in Southeast Asia, nor am I an expert on the most effective ways to support refugees in North Africa. I am not sure who is doing the most innovative work on solar-ovens or water filtration in South America or the most impactful undertakings to combat gender violence around the world. I don’t know by name the most connected individuals in the local Somali community. I don’t have elected officials on speed dial or a direct line to policy makers.

I don’t…but MINN does.
