This October, in its shining new downtown headquarters, Mercy Corps is opening the Mercy Corps Action Center. The multimedia learning museum is meant to further engage the public in the humanitarian organization’s mission to end world poverty and hunger. The 4,700-square-foot interactive Action Center was designed by renowned New York exhibit designer Ed Schlossberg.
