1. Regardless of where anyone sits on the political spectrum, America’s bipartisan investments in life saving programs is an American legacy all of us can be proud of and continue to support. Republicans, Democrats, and everyone in between knows that small investments in global development are yielding tremendous results, saving lives, keeping families together, and creating a more secure and safe world. We even created a this graphic to show that extreme poverty has NO affiliation:
2. If you want to make a real impact as an advocate, you must be registered to vote. If we are not willing to exercise the most fundamental right in a democracy and vote, how can we expect policymakers and elected leaders to take our advocacy seriously?
