NASW Government Relations Action Alert

Survivors of Hurricane Katrina in the U.S. deserve more, so do those living in poverty here and around the world. Basic shelter, healthcare and access to food and water are human rights.

Send a letter to support the movement to eradicate extreme poverty.

NASW is committed to pressing leaders to live up to their promises. This alert links to an online letter urging Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to engage in the World Summit at the UN September 14-16, 2005 , in support of the goals to eradicate extreme poverty and provide for basic human needs. We ask you to also place a phone call to President George W. Bush and a fax to Ambassador John Bolton (contact information is listed below).

As part of the ONE Campaign social workers call for increased international funding devoted to providing for healthcare, education, clean water, and food.

In the U.S. we thank our international colleagues (from the International Federation of Social Workers and elsewhere) for their support and assistance for the hurricane survivors, as we work to strenghten the international system to alleviate human catastrophe.

Script for phone call:
Urge President Bush to engage in the World Summit September 14-16, 2005 , in support of the goals to eradicate extreme poverty and provide for basic human needs.

Script for fax:
As Ambassador to the United Nations now is the time for you to examine of how aid, debt and trade can be better coordinated to ensure progress towards addressing extreme poverty. Alleviating poverty will enhance world security by reducing the pool of those who see violence as the only way to enhance their well being. Your leadership in this matter can help.

Participate in vigil and other activities.
