Support effective, efficient aid programs – they save lives.
Right now, forty percent of the world’s population – more than 2.5 billion people – live in poverty, struggling to survive on less than $2 per day. The persistence of global poverty poses a challenge to the security, prosperity and values of the United States.
Recently, Congress voted to make budget cuts that will affect people around the world – and while they weren't as drastic as they could have been, they will still have deep impacts. Now, Congress is looking at next year's budget – and we can't let them make any more cuts.
Poverty-fighting assistance makes up less than 1% of the federal budget while saving lives and helping to pull millions out of poverty. Cutting aid won’t close the budget gap, but it will close the door on a better future. Cuts to the world's most vulnerable communities have real impacts. Tell Congress we won't stand by while they make cuts that will cost lives.
Dear [Decision Maker],
