Take Action: Obama’s Inauguration

On a historic Tuesday in January, as many as four million people from around the country will converge on the national mall, with tens of millions more watching from home, all with one purpose: to hear what the newly-inaugurated President has to say.

At that landmark moment, Barack Obama will set the stage for his next four years in office, and potentially dramatic changes in U.S. foreign policy. Please add your name to our petition to President-elect Obama asking him to make a clear statement in his inaugural address affirming his vision for helping the world’s poorest people:

President-elect Obama,

In your inaugural address, please make a clear affirmation of your pledge to fight poverty and preventable diseases worldwide, and support that statement with an FY2010 budget request that puts the U.S. on track to meet your historic commitments.

This January, the eyes of the nation and the world will be on Barack Obama. Let’s ask him to share the spotlight with those who are most in need.

Thank you for making a difference,
