Poverty Petition

Tell them to go On the Record!
I just sent a message urging the 2008 presidential candidates to go On the Record and tell us exactly where they stand on extreme poverty and global disease.
You can help by taking action here:

This is what the petition you will be signing says:

On the Record Petition

As a member of ONE, I write to ask you to go on the record on where you stand on fighting extreme poverty and global disease that affect the one billion people around the world.

Alleviating suffering and tackling the root causes of global poverty will be defining issues for the next President of the United States and deserve your full attention. I hope you will respond to this letter with your plans to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, eradicate malaria, improve child and maternal health, achieve universal primary education, and provide access to clean water and food, as well as a personal message about how you plan to lead on the fight to make poverty history.

We are only one year away from Election Day 2008. The time to go on the record on extreme poverty and global disease is now. Thank you for considering this request and I look forward to your response.
