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:
your representative in Congress
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
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
