Dear ONE Member,
And it was a big one. In the past few weeks, more than 100,000 ONE members have written letters, signed petitions and made phone calls, asking our senators to support the reauthorization of PEPFAR, America's lifesaving response to global AIDS, TB and malaria.
On Wednesday, 80 senators did just that by voting to pass PEPFAR. Overwhelming bipartisan majorities stuck together to defeat a number of amendments that threatened to cut funding or otherwise undercut the success we've had in fighting these diseases.
In Indiana, Senator Dick Lugar was a true champion of PEPFAR reauthorization, and Senator Evan Bayh also voted for the bill, answering your calls and providing hope for the millions of people around the world who look to America as a partner in fighting these deadly, but treatable diseases.
I hope you'll take a moment to call Senators Lugar and Bayh at the numbers below to thank them for standing with us and reaffirming America's commitment to saving lives in some of the poorest parts of the world.
Senator Richard Lugar
Senator Evan Bayh
Thank you for your voice,
Josh Peck, ONE.org
