For ten years, the non-profit Saranam has provided homeless families in central New Mexico with the opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty though housing, education, and community. Tracy Sharp, Saranam's founding Executive Director, learned through years of work in traditional counseling and shelter settings that the only way to truly address the complex issue of homelessness is to tackle the root causes of poverty, empowering families to not only survive but to thrive.
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)
