Urge Congress to Oppose President Trump’s Proposed Cuts to Foreign Aid
President Trump just announced his proposed federal budget for 2018 and the news is devastating. Tragically, Trump’s proposal will harm vulnerable people around the world by slashing crucial foreign aid and development programs. His proposed budget cuts will also weaken institutions that are critical to upholding human rights worldwide.
U.S. foreign assistance comprises only one percent of all spending by the U.S. government, but it plays an indispensable role in advancing human rights, combatting poverty and mitigating global challenges such as epidemics and climate change.
Urge Congress to oppose President Trump’s proposed cuts to foreign aid without delay to ensure that communities around the world can live with the dignity and human rights they deserve.
