Well, this election took many of us by surprise. And, honestly – like you – I’m still figuring out what it means for our country, the world, and the issues we care about.
But here’s what I think we should focus on today: all of the amazing work you’ve done for the world’s most vulnerable people. And I know many of you are probably more motivated now than ever. I’m in awe of all the work you’ve done this year alone – hundreds of thousands of petition signatures, letters, tweets, in-person meetings.
I woke up Wednesday worried about the profound divisions this election exposed in our country. I woke up today feeling more strongly than ever that ONE is a piece of the solution.
We’ve always been a movement of people who come from different backgrounds, faiths, incomes, genders, and political parties. That diversity makes us stronger. So however you feel right now – left behind, finally heard or somewhere in between – know that there are people who feel differently than you, but they’re working for the same thing you are – a world without extreme poverty.
There is a lot of work to be done in the days and weeks ahead, and I look forward to doing that together.
