Never Enough Anti-Poverty Movements Department

You'd think that it shouldn't be necessary to point out that AIDS, extreme poverty, and starvation should be challenged, but in this political climate, it is necessary and vital.

The ONE Campaign has a declaration--a petition, if you will--you can sign to show your support for increasing the US budget a miniscule amount to radically improve the lives of those who need it the most. Debt relief for impoverished countries crushed under World Bank and IMF policies, better agricultural policies and equipment, better educational opportunities for those yearning to learn and improve their lot--all these can be accomplished much more cheaply than believed, especially if coupled with a fight against corruption and waste. Sign the declaration if you will, and then help out with the ONE Campaign in whatever way you can. Thank you.
