Call on Foreign Affairs Leadership to Move the Reach Act
Engage: Last year UNICEF announced that we’ve saved 50 million children’s lives since 2000.
Problem: Yet, 5.9 million children still die each year from mostly preventable causes.
Inform on the solution: We can end preventable maternal and child deaths by 2035 if we act now. 136 representatives, including 57 Republicans, have already cosponsored the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (HR 3706).
Call to action: We have a critical mass in the House. Will you please speak to the Chair and the Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) and Eliot Engel (D-NY), and ask them to prioritize moving the Reach Act this year?
