You Did It! 98 Representatives Signed the FY11 Global Fund Letter to Obama!
Congratulations! In a little over a week, RESULTS rallied to get 98 representatives — 22 percent of the House — to sign a letter, initiated by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), to President Obama calling on him to provide $1.75 billion for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria in his fiscal year 2011 budget. The power of your collective action has impressed members of Congress and other advocacy organizations, none of whom were expecting such an amazing list. With so many signers, the letter will also impress the administration as well.
The success of this letter was not only due to your determination over the last week to call your representatives and get them to sign on, but also to your years of advocacy for the Global Fund — all the meetings you’ve held with members of Congress and their staff, the media, and your communities to educate them about the life-saving work of the Global Fund.
