Together, we just made the world a better place!
Both chambers of Congress have now agreed on the Global Food Security Act with strong, bipartisan support!
The bill authorizes U.S.-led, long-term solutions for small farmers so that they’ll be able to feed their families and communities for years to come.
When I urged my members of Congress to support the Global Food Security Act, I knew that I wasn’t alone. All across this nation, Bread for the World members were speaking with one voice — a clear and caring voice of compassion. That is why I wanted to share this victory with you.
Thank you for your persistent advocacy and for your part in helping to pass legislation that means we share a world where there is less hunger and more prosperity. I’m calling my members of Congress to thank them for passing the Global Food Security Act. I invite you to do the same.
I’ve traveled enough to know that half of humanity is trying to live on $2 a day. American compassion like this — manifested in smart policy changes — goes a long way toward building a more peaceful and sustainable world. Can we afford to do this kind of good? Right now, we can’t afford not to.
Thank you for being a part of something so consequential and so good!
