15-Million To Take Action for A Better World

 

MEDIA RELEASE

Millions of women, men and children from more than sixty countries are taking to the streets, markets, workplaces and online throughout the month of May to demand that world leaders take ambitious actions this year to end poverty, inequalities and climate change.

Some 15 million people from every region of the world are expected to participate in the action/2015 May Month of Action -- which is being coordinated by World Vision and the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) -- united by an overarching call to the world's nations to adopt ambitious anti-poverty and climate agendas at two major forthcoming UN summits.

The month of May was chosen for this mass display of People Power because governments are right now negotiating the texts that will be adopted at the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Summit in September and the COP21 climate negotiations in December.
