Aloha from Hawaii! ONE members Merv Witherup, Patrick Gartside & Jessica Keithly deliver the petition to Rep. Gabbard’s office

ONE members made history last week by delivering YOUR Electrify Africa petition signatures to more than 200 district offices of their members of the House.

Normally, we deliver ONE petitions to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., but this time, we wanted local ONE members to be the faces that go with all the names calling on Congress to act.

ONE members from all walks of life – students, grandparents, priests and even babies – took part in this week-long event (check out our halfway point update here), and we are so proud to say that nearly every state in the union – including Hawaii and Alaska – has participated in this action. 

Take a look at some of the photos from the week.

We are so appreciative of the congressional district leaders and volunteers who made this happen. They are truly the faces of ONE because they make sure that our elected officials really listen when we send them petitions and letters and call their offices.

If you’d like to volunteer for ONE in your local community, head right here to let us know a bit more about what you’d like to do. A local organizer will be in touch.
