About the speaker

Invest In Humanity: The Room At The End Of The Hall

How a small act of kindness of providing a place for someone to stay grew into a lifetime of work in peace, justice, and investment in humanity—changing one life at a time.

“As a freshly arrived foreign student from Russia at Berkshire Community College in 1992, I stayed with a host family, and that year changed the whole path of my life, presenting opportunities I never dreamed possible. The kindness and quiet influence of my host parents, who were active advocates of peace and social justice, transformed lives (beyond just mine), creating a cycle of generosity and investment that still exists today.”
