A new Congress has arrived in Washington. Who will they hear from first?

It could be you.

Don’t wait to find out their priorities – be the one to set the agenda on Capitol Hill.

Tell your lawmakers that ending poverty here and everywhere should be at the top of their to-do list. That means seriously addressing the affordable housing crisis and the racial wealth divide in this country. That means creating economic policies, including a fair tax code, that prioritize low-income people. That means investing in programs to end diseases that are a cause and consequence of poverty around the world, like tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.

So, don’t wait: schedule a meeting with your member of Congress. Stand up and fight for the country and world you want to live in. Set the agenda.

A few days later, she would meet face-to-face with her senators and confidently explain why they should support education initiatives in low-income countries around the world.
