Your Gift = Poverty, COVID, Inequality, Climate Crisis Response


Thanks to your partnership, our Jubilee solutions to the coronavirus crisis are moving forward with world leaders.

On #GivingTuesday gifts are doubled to support Jubilee USA's coronavirus campaigns on debt, transparency, stimulus, climate and the G20. Your gift lifts our efforts to tackle the root causes of poverty and inequality.

Over the last year your support of Jubilee USA's mission meant:
  • Together, we mobilized hundreds of religious, labor, environmental, human rights groups and institutions to move forward coronavirus response campaigns to lift the poor, our livelihoods and the planet
  • We won a new debt relief process for developing countries suffering the effects of the corona health and economic crisis. This includes transparency processes to monitor aid effectiveness
  • 29 of the world's poorest countries saw debt payments cancelled through next spring and 73 developing countries can obtain debt payment relief through at least mid-2021
  • Jubilee's Corporate Transparency Act and the Illicit Cash Act passed the House and await Senate action. These bipartisan bills tackle anonymous shell companies when they shield human traffickers, steal debt relief and promote tax evasion and corruption
  • Our campaigns with Puerto Rico religious leaders moved forward a White House award of $13 billion for a total of $26 billion in disaster recovery funds, food aid for the island’s 300,000 schoolchildren and additional nutrition assistance funds. The White House also supported our proposals to bring back pharmaceutical manufacturing jobs
  • Our stimulus package efforts promoted debt relief for poor countries, Puerto Rico disaster aid and student debt relief
  • We are moving forward IMF and G20 approval of global reserve funds (Special Drawing Rights) to provide the aid that is needed for developing countries to survive and rebuild from the crisis
  • Jubilee USA is promoting climate finance solutions at the IMF, G20 and with President-elect Biden
  • The US - Mexico - Canada (USMCA) trade agreement went into effect with provisions that will protect vulnerable communities’ access to lifesaving medicines and eliminate harmful arbitration processes
  • We won a decision by the White House to freeze student loan payments until end of year
  • Somalia debt relief moved forward with the White House, State Department, Treasury, IMF and World Bank
  • Hundreds of thousands of newspapers and television and radio shows covered our Jubilee USA efforts
