Media Hits, Big News, Your Help


Please see below the incredible news coverage Jubilee USA and our joint efforts received in recent months.

This week we won our big campaign to release $650 billion in global SDR reserve funds for developing countries. This comes after our historic discussion with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to move our coronavirus response efforts.

Below you'll see how the media is showing the successes of our campaigns. Before you read all of the news coverage, please take action:

1.) Next week world leaders will make decisions on our coronavirus response campaigns. Please sign our petition here.

2.) Over 220 religious, labor, environmental, human rights and development groups have signed our coronavirus response letter to President Biden, the IMF and G20. Please have your group sign by April 6th before they make their next COVID decisions here.

3.) Donations to support our Jubilee USA mission and corona response campaigns are doubled now. Please make a gift

From the Wall Street Journal to Fox News to the Financial Times, the New York Times and your local paper - below you can find a sampling of how the global media has told our Jubilee USA 2021 story.
