How to take action with ONE on U2’s The Joshua Tree Tour

Stop these cuts

Stop President Trump’s proposed cuts to foreign aid

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of U2’s 1987 album, The Joshua Tree, the band is going on tour! ONE co-founder Bono and the rest of the group —  the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. — start the North American leg of the tour on Friday, May 12, in Vancouver. (See the full list of tour dates below.)

At each stop, concert goers will be able to take action with ONE in two different ways. (And don’t worry if you can’t make it to the show — you can take these actions online, too!) Just follow the links below.

Letters to Congress

The president’s proposed cuts to foreign aid – nearly a third – would be disastrous for those living in extreme poverty. Congress can stop these cuts – but only if we speak out. On the concourse at each tour stop, we’ll have our volunteers collecting signed letters to your elected officials. We’ll provide tablets for you to submit your information and pre-populate a message about protecting foreign aid to send to your senator. You’ll be able to sign your name and customize the letter before sending it off. On the 2015 tour, our volunteers collected about 35,000 letters!

#GirlsCount videos

Right now, 130 million girls around the world are being denied an education — and, because of that, the chance to reach their full potential. Our leaders can make sure all girls get an education, but we need to put pressure on them to act. So we’re asking you to help us count every single girl out loud. We’ll deliver your message directly to the people in power who can change these girls’ futures. Your count will join others as we try to make the world’s longest video.

Two ways to take action at ONE amazing show! Our volunteers can’t wait to see you!
