Ask Foreign Affairs Leadership to Move the Reach Act

Engage: Last year UNICEF announced that we’ve saved 50 million children’s lives since 2000.

Problem: Yet, 5.9 million children still die each year from mostly preventable causes.

Inform on the solution: We can end preventable maternal and child deaths by 2035 if we act now on the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (H.R. 3706). The Reach Act has 183 cosponsors, including 67 Republicans. This is more support than 99% of all the legislation introduced in the House.

Call to action:   Will you please speak to the Chair and Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) and Eliot Engel (D-NY), and ask them to prioritize moving the Reach Act this year?
