ATLANTA-Today, as part of the Make US Strong campaign for international development, 27-year-old Janessa Goldbeck held an event at Parish Market to discuss how international development is important to Atlanta's prosperity, and America's security.
"Development has been key to keeping America safe since the 'Greatest Generation' rebuilt Europe after World War II," said Goldbeck, an international development expert who will join the Marine Corps after the Cycle for Security Tour ends. "We need both our military and our international development programs to be strong if America is going to be safe and prosperous. I'm proud to be able to ride across America on behalf of the Make US Strong campaign, talking with people about how important it is that Congress supports our international development programs." At the event, a representative from the Mayor's office presented Goldbeck with The Phoenix Award. The Phoenix Award was designed by the Atlanta Mayor's Office for organizations and individuals who have made significant contributions to the residents of Georgia and is the highest honor the city can bestow upon a citizen. From February until May, as Goldbeck rides through eleven states, she will work with students, policy makers, activists, and others to send the message to Congress that they should fully fund international development. Along the tour, Goldbeck will also post blog entries and videos documenting the progress of her tour and encouraging Americans to get involved in the campaign. As a college student, Janessahelped launch STAND, an international student movement to stop the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. Janessa went on to direct national field and online strategy at the Genocide Intervention Network and the Save Darfur Coalition. In October, she will attend Officer Candidate School, where she will train to qualify for a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps.
