Letter to the editor: Borgen Project can help

It can be easy to be pessimistic about the state that our world and society is in on a normal day but this sentiment can especially be felt right now as we face a pandemic with COVID-19. The good news is that many organizations all over the nation are still working hard to
make the world a better place, and The Borgen Project is just one example. The Borgen Project a nonprofit organization that seeks to reduce poverty by making it a focus of United States foreign policy. The organization focuses on high impact and systematic
change by contacting and meeting with congressional leaders to ask them to cosponsor poverty-reducing legislation. In the 17 years that the organization has been operating it has helped several poverty-reducing legislation be passed. Action that can be taken
by us all is to urge congressional leaders to support the Global Health Security Act, which would increase the U.S. government’s efforts to support epidemic and pandemic preparedness and prevent threats of infectious disease outbreaks. With this being said
I urge Senator Michael Bennet, Senator Cory Gardner, and Representative Ed Pearlmutter to support the Global Health Security Act. Lastly, if you are wanting to contribute your time by volunteering with The Borgen Project, remote volunteer positions are also
open.
