Kicking off the 7th annual ONE Power Summit!

It’s a special time of year here at ONE headquarters, and the wait is almost over.

On Saturday, 200 of ONE’s top volunteer leaders from around the country will descend on Washington, D.C., for the 7th annual ONE Power Summit. From Boise to Boston, Honolulu to Houston and everywhere in between, we will welcome ONE advocates for four days of training, policy briefings, and tons of fun all culminating in a lobby day on Capitol Hill!

After months of planning, meetings and working through all of the logistics, I’m so excited that it’s finally here. The ONE Field team works closely with our volunteer leaders all year, and while we regularly communicate via phone, email, or even in-person meetings, nothing compares to having everyone together all at once. Seeing our top leaders from communities and college campuses all over the country come together shows the true power of our movement to end extreme poverty by 2030.

So follow along throughout the conference as moms, students, grandpas, pastors, and everyone in between come and gear up for another awesome year as advocates for ONE. You can follow #ONESummit and check back here for our daily wrap-up posts.
