NEW YORK (IDN) - This morning at the White House, I saw Pope Francis urge world leaders to protect the most vulnerable and build an economy that leaves no one behind.

As I watched Pope Francis, I was jubilant. After all, the organization I direct, Jubilee USA, was founded by religious leaders and Pope John Paul II to do just that – win global economic reforms to benefit those living in poverty.
