Tell Congress: Women and Girls First

Every year, CARE’s lifesaving and life-changing programs reach tens of millions of people.

What many don’t realize is that a crucial component of our poverty-fighting work starts right here in the United States.

CARE works closely with Congress to support and develop legislation that addresses the underlying causes of poverty.

With your help, we can continue to ensure that Congress enacts policies that prioritize the rights and wellbeing of the most marginalized women and girls around the world and their communities, empowering them to create a brighter future for all.


Get the facts, spread the word.
