In February 2011, the US House of Representatives voted to make huge cuts in the FY2011 budget. Poverty-fighting, cost-effective programs-which make up less than one percent of the US budget-were sharply cut.
In response to these unsettling budget cuts, more than 150,000 ONE members urged the Senate to reverse the House cuts and preserve the funding. ONE members also made more than 16,000 calls to members of Congress and arranged hundreds of in-district meetings.
In April, Congress passed the 2011 US budget-and it preserved nearly all key funding for programs fighting poverty in the developing world. With the help and hard work of hundreds of thousands of ONE members, key programs that fight HIV/AIDS, malaria, and hunger maintained their full funding.
