Judith Rowland, U.S. policy and advocacy manager for Global Citizen

“…Now that both the House and Senate appropriations bills for the State and Foreign Operations and Related Programs subcommittees have been marked up, it is clear that Congress has stood up for the world’s poorest and committed to increase funding for programs tackling our world’s greatest challenges. This year, Congress is taking bipartisan action to lead the world in the fight to end extreme poverty. … The budget recommendations made by the Senate and House Appropriations committees reveal ongoing, bipartisan belief in U.S. leadership on the international stage. By funding lifesaving programs and making strides toward overcoming the world’s greatest challenges, Congress is standing for the world’s poorest and calling on other nations to do the same” (7/15).
