Support policies that empower women around the world

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to ask you to support U.S. foreign policies and programs that address the social and economic inequalities that leave women in the developing world subject to a life of poverty.

Giving people an opportunity to improve their lives is what America is all about. As you make choices in this year's budget process, please remember that your decisions about U.S. foreign assistance programs will affect millions of women. I will keep in touch as specific opportunities arise.

Thank you for your consideration.
