G8 Leaders: Don't Ignore the Fight Against Hunger and Poverty!
Target: G8 Leaders
Sponsored by: ONE
Millions of people are locked in a vicious cycle of hunger and poverty. Poverty means parents can't feed their families enough nutritious food, leaving children malnourished. Malnutrition leads to irreversibly stunted development and shorter, less productive lives. Less productive lives mean no escape from poverty. We have to break this cycle.
That's why we're urgently calling on the G8 to break the cycle of hunger and poverty, tackling their root causes. No child should have to go to bed hungry tonight. And if we achieve our goals by 2015, we could see 15 million fewer children chronically malnourished and 50 million people lifted out of extreme poverty.
Tell Congress to Save Our Science!

NASA's Science program -- including Planetary Science -- is slated for drastic cuts in the proposed U.S. budget for fiscal year 2013. NASA will be forced to back out of planned missions to Mars with the European Space Agency in 2016 and 2018. Any future flagship missions to the outer planets will be gone. NASA's proud tradition of planetary discovery will be devastated.
Congress is now considering this proposed budget, but there is still time to restore the needed 30% of NASA's budget to the Science program and prevent these destructive cuts.
Join Bill Nye and The Planetary Society in taking action today by sending a message to your Congressional representatives: Save Our Science to keep NASA's crucial discoveries coming!
