Take action against illegitimate debt and together, let's stop the global debt cycle! Join Jubilee USA Network the weekend of October 14 for our Jubilee Weekend. In conjunction with Illegitimate Debt Week with our partners in the Global South, we can make a difference. Communities across the country and around the world will be taking action! Will you join us?
As our global partners take action, Jubilee USA is calling for actions throughout the United States to support our upcoming policy initiatives. This fall, Jubilee USA will introduce the Jubilee Act into Congress.
The legislation will provide solutions to the international debt crises and work towards implementing responsible lending and borrowing practices for International Financial Institutions. Through its passage, mechanisms to promote transparency and accountability and will produce greater worldwide economic justice.
Jubilee USA urges all people of conscience to:
- Sign our Voices of Esther postcards if you are a member of a faith community,
- Write letters to your members of the House & Senate in support of the Jubilee Act,
- Host events in your community
- Take pictures of your community taking a stand in solidarity to urge your member of Congress to stop the global debt cycle. These same pictures will be sent along to our partners in the Global South with a message of support!
These steps link us together with our brothers and sisters around the world and move us forward on a path of global economic justice. Together, we will provide the changes needed in International Financial Institutions to transform the economic system and allow for more opportunities of repudiation and cancelling of unjust debt!
