Putting poverty in the presidential race

The ONE Campaign’s commitment to make poverty history was stepped up June 11 when a mass media and mobilization effort to make global poverty a fundamental aspect of the 2008 presidential race was launched at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

The new initiative, “ONE Vote ’08: Saving Lives, Securing our Future,” promises to energize presidential candidates and ONE members “to make the fight against global poverty a key foreign policy and security issue at the 2008 ballot box.”
