More than 150 ONE activists are in Washington, DC this week to attend the ONE Power Summit. This annual event gathers some of our most elite volunteers from across the United States for issue briefings, advocacy training, and the opportunity to hear from political and policy figures who’ve led the fight against extreme poverty and disease.
This year’s Power Summit culminated with ONE members meeting with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to urge them to “Go on the Record” in support of maintaining America’s commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS.
Want to help from home? Sign our petition and ask your lawmakers to #StepUpTheFight against HIV/AIDS.
Here is a recap of everything you missed:
