ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of nearly 4 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Not politically partisan, we raise public awareness and press political leaders to combat AIDS and preventable diseases, increase investments in agriculture and nutrition, and demand greater transparency in poverty-fighting programs. ONE is not a grant-making organization and does not solicit funding from the public or receive government funding. ONE is funded almost entirely by foundations, individual philanthropists and corporations. We achieve change through advocacy. Our teams in Washington, D.C., New York, London, Johannesburg, Brussels, Berlin, and Paris educate and lobby governments to shape policy solutions that save and improve millions of lives.

Poverty is sexist

Nowhere on earth do women have as many opportunities as men. Nowhere. While the debate around this truth rages everywhere, girls and women living in extreme poverty – those often hit hardest by the injustice of gender inequality – have been left out of the conversation. 62 million girls are denied the right to education, and 155 countries still have laws discriminating against women. Add your name to tell World Leaders to do better by women hit hardest by extreme poverty with increased funding for women fighting HIV & malnutrition, as well as policies supporting female economic empowerment. Sexism is global. The fight against it should be too.

Petitioning 2016 Presidential Candidates

There are no sides in the fight against extreme poverty.

The next president of our country will be at the forefront of world leaders helping to end extreme poverty. America has a long tradition of being a leader in helping the world’s poorest countries help themselves. Presidents George W. Bush created PEPFAR to help combat preventable diseases like HIV/AIDS in these countries. And bipartisan-led trade and nutrition programs have helped save millions of lives and cut poverty in half, for just pennies from the US budget.  Help us ask the 2016 presidential candidates to go “on the record” and answer one very important question: If elected president, what will you do to help fight extreme poverty, particularly in Africa?  ONE Vote ’16 is a project of ONE Action, a nonpartisan, global advocacy and campaigning organization

Foreign Assistance Can be More Efficient and Effective

Every tax dollar spent by the federal government -- especially those spent overseas -- should be spent in the most efficient and effective way possible. Americans must be able to trust that their development dollars are helping the people who need that help the most. This means that our top leaders must ensure that this money goes to programs like those that fight extreme poverty and is not stolen by corrupt leaders or diverted to enemies of the United States.  Sign the petition and ask the 2016 presidential candidates: If elected, what will you do to fight extreme poverty in Africa?  ONE Vote ’16 is a project of ONE Action, a nonpartisan, global advocacy and campaigning organization

We have an Opportunity to Renew America’s Global Leadership

We need to be sure that our next president has a strong national security platform on which to stand when he or she takes office.  With all that is going on around the world these days, the next President must draw on all aspects of foreign policy -- defense, diplomacy, and development -- to make his or her platform the strongest it can be. Addressing extreme poverty is an important piece to development, and therefore our national strategic interest.  Sign the petition and ask the presidential candidates: If elected, what will you do to fight extreme poverty in Africa?
