Their focus rests on 4 pillars: global food security; food-aid reform; mortality rates; and access to water, sanitation and power. Their goal is to be "an influential ally for the world's poor" by advocating for foreign aid legislation with Congress members, mobilizing citizens to influence politicial leaders, and educating the public on how to communicate with the government. Started by Clint Borgen in 2003, they have a team of exceptional volunteers in over 500 cities.
