Utne Reader Names Director of Democracy Collaborative a Visionary
National Magazine Selects Ted Howard Among 25 People Who Are Changing the World 

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (Oct. 21, 2010) — Utne Reader, the best of the alternative press, names Ted Howard, executive director of the Democracy Collaborative, as a visionary who is making the world a better place. Howard is among 25 people the magazine highlights in its November/December issue, on newsstands now.

As founder and executive director of the Democracy Collaborative, Howard works on “wealth-building opportunities” to assist the disadvantaged and emphasizes creating jobs in anchor institutions such as schools and hospitals. Howard currently resides in College Park and has more than 15 years of experience in international development working with nongovernmental organizations and United Nations agencies.

“Throughout the year, as we read and plan issues, our editorial staff and select freelancers compile lists of people and institutions across disciplines that are doing work that challenges the status quo and promises positive, forward progress,” says David Schimke, Utne Reader’s editor in chief.
