Ask President Obama to Keep Our Global Promises

Dear Friends,

Right now more than 18 million people in the Sahel region of West and Central Africa are facing a desperate shortage of food. Again. We know how to stop this cycle of one crisis after another, and yet it is allowed to continue.

Please join me in signing the petition right now at:

The G8 met at Camp David in May and formed something called the New Alliance to lift 50 million people out of poverty through long-term agriculture plans. This was a an important step forward for the first 3 countries named in the G8 plans.

But now it is time to deliver for more countries— including 6 in the Sahel region— that stand ready to lift themselves out of poverty. This means a total of 15 countries by the end of the year. And next year, the G8 should double that number, reaching the full 30 countries that are currently ready to go.

Take action right now at:

Thank you,

Chris
