Unlock Aid goes to Washington

Dozens of social innovators from around the world are flying to Washington, DC to speak with lawmakers about the need for more innovation, transparency, and sustainable results in global development. Now is the time for bold reforms to unlock billions of dollars to achieve the SDGs by 2030.

We need all hands on deck to pass legislation that will:

Number one

Create new pathways for high-impact organizations to access U.S. foreign aid funding 

Number one

Shift more resources to frontline, local, and national organizations

Number one

Create new standards for transparency, accountability, and results in U.S. foreign aid spending
