The ONE organization, a grassroots campaign organization against extreme poverty and preventable diseases, is asking leaders of the G20 nations, now meeting in Pittsburg, to hold the next G20 summit in Africa. Today, the organization sent out an email asking everyone to take action and pressure these leaders to hold the next G20 meeting in Africa.
In the statement they released, the organization said:
“Africa’s tremendous potential will only be unleashed if the rest of the world makes a real effort to bring the continent into the global economy. Africa’s resources, intellectual and physical, can help re-start the global economy and lift a generation out of extreme poverty. But that will only happen if we can get the powerful people meeting in Pittsburgh to look more than 3,500 miles away to Africa”
