CARE President and CEO Michelle Nunn co-authored an op-ed in USA Today along with Sens. Chris Coons and Jeff Merkle outlining how an investment in women has a greater long-term impact on the community. An excerpt: “Most Americans wrongly assume the United States spends much more money overseas than we do. Many are surprised to learn that we invest just 1% of our federal budget in foreign aid. They are even more surprised that President Trump’s budget proposes dramatically slashing these investments that advance American values, open new markets for U.S. businesses, keep our country safe and, as we saw firsthand, allow people to become reclaim their humanity.”
