Fund and Implement the Water for the Poor Act

Urge your representative to fully fund this important legislation

Proposed cuts to foreign assistance threaten full implementation of the Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act (WPA), a law that signals that the United States is willing to be a leader in international water, sanitation, and hygiene assistance for countries in need.

Water underlies all aspects of human existence — and by 2025, nearly two-thirds of the world’s population will be living under water-stressed conditions. Please urge your representative to do the following:

March for Water
  • Preserve foreign aid funding for the Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act
  • Encourage the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to develop a coordinated strategy to fully implement the Water for the Poor Act, including consultation with marginalized communities to develop sustainable and appropriate technologies
  • Direct aid to countries with greatest needs in Africa, Asia, and Latin America

Please fully fund the Water for the Poor Act!

Dear [Decision Maker],

The Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act (WPA) of 2005 signaled to the world that the United States is willing to be a leader in international water, sanitation, and hygiene assistance for those in greatest need.

As a supporter of UUSC and your constituent, I ask you to do the following:

* Preserve foreign aid funding for the Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act
* Encourage the U.S. Department of State and USAID to develop a coordinated strategy to fully implement the law, including consultation with marginalized communities to develop sustainable and appropriate technologies
* Direct aid to countries with greatest needs in Africa, Asia, and Latin America




I urge you to take action for water justice. Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Sincerely,
