Thanks to your partnership, we won White House support and passed legislation in the House of Representatives to stop human trafficking, raise revenue in the developing world and protect debt relief and development aid.
We now need to leap over the last hurdle: the US Senate. Please make a gift now so we have the resources we desperately need to move the Senate. Contributions to Jubilee USA are doubled now.
Beyond our 10 year campaign finally winning, we have an unbelievable series of successes to celebrate. In recent weeks:
- Jubilee USA appeared in tens of thousands of newspapers across the world and in every US State
- We addressed the world's Presidents and Prime Ministers at the United Nations General Assembly
- We won debt relief for Puerto Rico
- Pope Francis and the Vatican highlighted our analysis in the Pope's Africa travels on debt, tax and corruption
- And Congress committed to vote on our Jubilee legislation within the next few days
Will you please join me and make a contribution to support our mission at Jubilee USA. Gifts are doubled now, tax-deductible and needed to move forward our incredibly urgent campaigns.
Your gift today means we can:
- Win debt relief for Somalia. Three quarters of Somalia's population lives in extreme poverty and is still recovering from war and instability. Congress will vote on Somalia's debt relief and your support means we can move Congress. Your support also means we can move forward responsible lending and debt and disaster relief for Mozambique and Caribbean islands.
- We can pass the Corporate Transparency Act in the Senate after we won the House and the White House. This legislation stops "Panama Papers" financial secrecy illustrated in the recent movie, the Laundromat. This behavior facilitates the theft of development aid, human trafficking and contributes to the loss of more than a trillion dollars of revenue in the developing world.
- Move forward debt and disaster relief for Puerto Rico. Already our efforts together won $50 billion in aid and moved forward a super bankruptcy process for the island. Your gift means we can win debt relief, stop austerity policies, audit the debt and win the $70 billion in recovery aid Puerto Rico still needs.
- Push for a new NAFTA trade deal that ensures vulnerable populations and all who need life-saving medicines can access the medicines they need. Working together, we already moved the White House to eliminate harmful provisions in trade agreements that favor predatory, debt- collecting hedge funds and abusive corporations. Congress votes this year on our efforts.
- Address student debt, predatory debt collection and payday lending. Working together, we ensured types of student loans have low interest rates. When you donate to Jubilee USA now, it means our bipartisan, interfaith work can build bridges to protect students and consumers.
Please make a gift of $5, $500, $25, $50, $100 or any amount and it will be doubled. We really need your contribution now.
After we addressed the UN General Assembly two weeks ago, Presidents and Prime Ministers told me how grateful they are that Jubilee USA exists and wins for the vulnerable. When you make a gift today, it will be doubled and double our impact this year to win policies that lift and protect the vulnerable.
