Rise July 2022 Webinar: Progress on S. 2956 (Global Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment Act)
The July Together Women Rise Advocacy Chapter webinar was a celebration of Advocacy Month, as well as progress on S. 2956, The Global Malnutrition and Prevention Act, which has now passed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. You can find the recording and the slides here.
This bipartisan legislation better positions USAID, our country’s main international development agency, to support countries to save more lives and, utilizing the interventions that we know work, bring an end to child deaths due to malnutrition. We must now ask that our senators bring S. 2956 to the floor for a vote and be passed into law – submit an LTE (Letter to the Editor), sample letter here. Ask your Senators to take this critical action and bring us across the finish line!
