In President Trump’s budget request for FY20, he proposes a drastic cut of 24-percent to the foreign aid budget, while asking for $8.6 billion in funding for a border wall. We must urge Congress to reject these cuts and speak up for the power of foreign aid.
Foreign aid makes up only 1% of the federal budget, but has a positive impact on the lives of tens of millions of people in places like Yemen, South Sudan, Somalia and DR Congo. Any cuts to this funding, especially during a time of such great humanitarian need, put lives in danger.
Sign the petition now to tell Congress that we MUST reject any cuts to foreign aid. Families in need are counting on us — and we can’t let them down.
