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 continue 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 protect foreign aid. Families in need are counting on us — and we can’t let them down.
