Request that Congress Lead on Global Development Appropriations
Engage: We know members of the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee of Appropriations will soon be considering spending levels for life-saving global development work for the fiscal year 2016 foreign aid spending bill.
Problem: As concerned constituents, we are particularly interested in what is at stake when it comes to global development. In addition to saving lives and empowering people to build pathways out of poverty, global development programs also contribute to U.S. economic growth and boost our national security.

Call to Action: Will you speak or write to the leadership of the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittee of Appropriations and ask that they include the following funding levels in their bill? We, as constituents, thank you for your leadership and for considering this request.
