The Power of Advocacy

Our voices have power.  Direct, personalized communication directed toward elected leaders is one of the most impactful ways to influence the decision-making process.  ONE calls these types of advocacy actions “catalytic actions,” and includes handwritten letters, phone cals, in-person meetings, tweets, or any other personalized communication that is directly addressed/delivered to a decision maker asking them to support one of ONE’s policy priorities to help end extreme poverty.
