By addressing the systemic contributors and causes of poverty, World Vision’s advocacy work ensures that community transformation is sustainable and scalable. We back policies that have broad, bipartisan support in Congress, in partnership with other leading humanitarian organizations. Over the past decade, our advocacy has helped pass nearly one new law every year that ensures that children are better fed, educated and protected from violence and harm. To build on this work we need thousands of advocates across the country uniting their voices for this cause.
