Working in Unity to Fight Budget Cuts

All the proposed budget cuts in Congress have made the future seem grim, but it is just a matter of perspective. In Georgia, our perspective has led to unity.

In the past week RESULTS partners, ONE members, and friends from Bread for the World worked together and met with staff members from Senator Isakson’s and Senator Chambliss’s offices. In unity, we used our voices to speak on behalf of the world’s poorest people. 

Change can only happen when reasonable people agree to sit down and talk with each other. Hopefully this week we made progress in that regard. Hopefully, Georgia’s Senators will realize that this small piece of the pie, the less than 1% of the budget that goes to foreign aid, is truly invaluable. 

Thanks to all the organizations, individuals, and staffers who helped make our meetings successful. An extra special thanks to the Congressional aides who took the time to meet with us. Mwah!
