Act Now: Urge Congress to co-sponsor H.Res.189

March 13, 2019

This year, we are working with Congress to protect funding for anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs and to pass legislation that scales up what we know works when it comes to improving the nutrition of women and children.

Last week, U.S. Reps. Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Jim McGovern (D-MA) introduced H.Res.189 recognizing the importance of continued United States leadership to accelerate global progress against maternal and child malnutrition.

The resolution acknowledges that progress has been made, thanks to strong U.S. leadership and a bipartisan commitment, but more needs to be done if we are going to eliminate malnutrition. This includes support for the U.S. global nutrition strategy and increased efforts to scale up maternal and child nutrition.

Call 800-826-3688 or email your U.S. representative today! Urge your U.S. representative to co-sponsor H.Res.189.

Almost half of all child deaths worldwide are linked to malnutrition. We know that increased access to nutritious food and vitamins, supporting breastfeeding, and ensuring safe drinking water and sanitation will enable more children to grow and reach their full potential.

Call 800-826-3688 or email and urge your U.S. representative to co-sponsor H.Res.189. Better nutrition today means a better tomorrow for millions of women and children around the world.
