The ONE Campus Challenge is a college competition designed to mobilize students, faculty and alumni in the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease.
ICYMI: May Edition
Here’s a look back on a month full of kickass advocacy by amazing ONE members just like YOU!
Poverty Is Sexist
While ONE knows “Poverty Is Sexist” (and you and I both know it) it’s most definitely worth celebrating when over 150 influential figures from around the world step in and join the Poverty Is Sexist campaign. Having their support means that much more awareness to the campaign and that many more activists ready to put pen to paper to say 130 million girls without an education, 1 billion women without a bank account and 39,000 girls becoming child brides today is simply unacceptable. If you haven’t signed the petition, it’s not too late – sign TODAY.
Summer Advocate’s Program ☀
With the month of May comes the end of the school year and what we’re all most excited about – the start of Summer! This year ONE Campus has launched the first ever Summer Advocate’s program and we are so excited. Thanks to the Summer Advocate’s program, advocacy can truly happen anywhere and anytime. Whether you’re staying on campus for the summer, interning somewhere new or simply going back home, the program works for everyone. Make sure to follow us on all our social channels to get exciting updates from volunteers across the nation.
Have you tried out the latest and greatest quiz from ONE? We love this quiz because of its purpose – it’s reminding us that all over the world women are facing unjust laws simply because of their gender. If you think these laws don’t belong in our society than make sure to add your name to the petition at the end of the quiz and tell World Leaders women deserve equal rights. If you haven’t already, share the quiz with friends and family to see who gets the best score!
With the start of the summer also comes the end of the school year and most importantly graduation! Make sure to congratulate any of your fellow Campus Members who have graduated and definitely check out our latest blog: 4 years with ONE. Brien and Cody’s dedication to ONE Campus is truly inspiring and we are so thankful for their hard work these past 4 years. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for these two and all our other graduates.
