BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
Volunteers like me work with our Congressional leaders to help generate change and secure support for crucial poverty-reducing legislation – I am a Regional Director for The Borgen Project. I chose to be involved with this non-profit organization because I believe that it is imperative to build awareness of global issues, educate citizens on basic advocacy, mobilize people across the US to share their voice in Congress, and advocate to make poverty a political priority. It is proven that the investment in underdeveloped nations creates US jobs and improves national security -- two of what I consider to be the most critical issues confronting the United States.
