We Can End Hunger! Sign the Global Food Security Act Petition

Empowered By

Women Thrive Worldwide is the leading nonprofit organization bringing the voice of women around the world directly to decision-makers in Washington, D.C.

About the Petition

This Thanksgiving, more than 840 million people won't get enough to eat. But it doesn't have to be that way. If women farmers had equal access to agricultural resources as men do, as many as 150 million fewer people would go hungry.  

You can help make global hunger a thing of the past. Stand with women farmers—sign Women Thrive Worldwide’s petition, and they will deliver your signature to Congressional leaders. 

To: Representative Ed Royce, Chairman of Committee on Foreign Affairs

It’s atrocious that more than 840 million people don’t have enough to eat. As Chair of the Committee on Foreign Relations, please do everything in your power to help pass the Global Food Security Act. Women farmers are key to addressing global hunger. These farmers deserve:

  • A long-term strategy to improve global nutrition, food security, and agricultural development.
  • Our assistance in securing seeds and fertilizer, trainings, credit and overall market access – efforts that increase the capacity of farmers to grow more food and better sell at local markets.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
