Support Poverty-Focused Foreign Aid Around the World

Support Poverty-Focused Foreign Aid Around the World

SPREAD THE WORD!

About the Petition

Global poverty is a moral, economic, and national security issue. Right now, 40 percent 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 percent of the federal budget. With a small investment from the U.S. government, our foreign aid programs support local community leaders 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.

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