“Suzanne’s political acumen, campaign experience, and work to generate public support for ONE’s work across the United States has led to numerous successes in our fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, including significant victories that have improved access to affordable electricity in Africa and increased funding to help fight AIDS, TB, and malaria. Over the course of ten years at ONE, she has built on her reputation as a strong leader who can advance our priorities in the US and Canada, as well as globally. We’re fortunate to have her at the helm of our North America team and we look forward to her continued leadership and vision.”
