Americans are enjoying prosperity, Bread for the World has tapped public

affairs veteran Howard Salter as its new communications director.



Salter, previously a senior public affairs officer at the United States

Agency for International Development (AID), came to DC in 1992 after

working as a Clinton/Gore campaign spokesperson in Michigan. At AID, he

played a pivotal role in developing the agency’s Information Center

showcase, located in its DC headquarters.



Bread for the World is a 45,000-member activist organization concerned

with overseas and domestic poverty. Its grass-roots activist network

handles outside-the-Beltway lobbying and communications, but the group

is seeking greater recognition from the national news media.



Salter plans to place more emphasis on getting media exposure for the

organization’s president, Rev. David Beckmann. Beckmann believes

worldwide hunger problems can be solved through a combination of

private- and public-sector efforts.



Additionally, the group has brought its Web management in-house in order

to make its site more user-friendly.
