We can address root causes:
Due to unfair trade deals and loans, land grabs, tax evasion and corruption by the wealthy nations, the unequal costs of climate change and other injustices, the world’s poorest people and nations subsidize the world’s richest with a net $3 trillion. Every year. 1
This helps explain why:
- Sub-Saharan Africa has 149 million more people in the most extreme poverty than in 1990 (only $1.90 a day). 2
- More than 3.6 billion people struggle to live on less than $5.50 a day. 3
Extreme poverty leads to epidemics, refugee crises, war and even terrorism.
Reforming massive injustice is a very cost-effective way to help create a more sustainable, just, peaceful and beautiful world.
Hearts and Minds® is building public education and advocacy to support reforms in global trade, aid and economics.
We’ll recruit and work with activists to encourage the media and Congress to support and pass reform legislation.
Our new platform will go online soon here as we leverage confirmed, increased funding to strengthen our work.
If you’re enthusiastic to help, we’d love to hear from you!
