Sign the Petition to

US CONGRESS

"Dear Congress,
Protect our investment in life-saving development programs, such as those that fight HIV/AIDS, childhood diseases, and hunger, by preserving the International Affairs account."

So here's the plan: first, let's get more than 100,000 ONE members to sign this petition. Then we'll bombard Congress' phone lines. And right when they think we're done, ONE members all across the country will show up in person to deliver our petition and fight to get these cuts stopped.

And from today on, we need to tell everyone we know that if these cuts go through:

112,500 pregnant moms won't receive medicine to prevent their babies from being infected with HIV
2.5 million bed nets won't be available to protect families from malaria
1 million fewer families will learn new farming techniques and be better nourished
And that's just a few examples of what the devastating consequences could be.

We've got to protect the world's most vulnerable people from these cuts now: http://act.one.org/go/847?t=5&akid=3489.1848696.FsBBbf

Thanks for your support - and stay tuned for more ways to get involved in this fight over the next few weeks.

Signed,

Rita Simonian

In seven weeks, funding to fight global AIDS, hunger and poverty will be slashed in an unprecedented way - unless our political leaders act.

Cutting these programs...

Dear Rita,

In seven weeks, funding to fight global AIDS, hunger and poverty will be slashed in an unprecedented way - unless our political leaders act.

Cutting these programs - which make up less than 1% of the US budget - won't make a dent in the deficit, but will put millions of lives at risk. We can't let this happen.!PLEASE CLICK ON LINK TO ADD YOUR NAME AND SHARE VIA SOCIAL FEED! ~ RITA & SUZY
