Operation HOPE John Hope BryantHOPE Founder and Author John Hope Bryant join Gallup Chairman and former Presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty for tour kickoff discussion in Washington, DC on June 5
Endorsed by former President Bill Clinton, with a foreword by legendary civil rights leader Andrew Young, John Hope Bryant builds a compelling economic argument for investing in America’s least wealthy consumers. Operation HOPE plans to launch the first leg of its national book tour – the HOPE 100 City Tour — to promote the latest book by Bryant, entitled How the Poor Can Save Capitalism: Rebuilding the Path to the Middle Class, starting on June 2014. The book is heralded as the organization’s plan for creating America’s first national private banker for the poor, working class and the struggling middle class.

The tour officially kicks off on June 5, in Washington, DC at the Gallup organization’s headquarters, with Gallup Chairman and CEO Jim Clifton and former Minnesota Governor and Republican Presidential Candidate and current Financial Services Roundtable CEO, Tim Pawlenty, for a discussion about how the poor can save capitalism.
