Foreign aid on the chopping block – save it now!

Aid to fight poverty is working. With a small investment from the US government, our foreign aid programs support local actors as they take action to lift themselves and their communities out of poverty – they're able to build a dream, build a business, support their family, or help their community.

Global poverty is a moral, economic and national security issue. And right now, 40% of the world’s population – more than 2.5 billion people – lives in poverty, struggling to survive on less than $2 per day.

American poverty-fighting assistance saves lives and helps millions of people lift themselves out of poverty, all for less than 1% of the federal budget. Cutting aid won't close the budget gap – but it will close the door on a better future for the world's most vulnerable communities.

We can't afford to let Congress cut lifesaving foreign assistance – because they work. And that's why we need your voice right now.

Tell Congress: Oppose any cuts to lifesaving foreign aid.
