Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) proved himself a powerful ambassador for women and girls last week by supporting UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, on the Senate floor. UNFPA provides vital sexual and reproductive health services, including family planning, care during pregnancy and childbirth, and prevention of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. UNFPA delivers these lifesaving services in over 150 countries, often in areas where no other services exist.
Senator Leahy deserves recognition for his work to ensure that UNFPA receives the funding it needs for its vital work. Please take a moment to thank Senator Leahy. Call 202-224-4242 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (using your own text or the text below):
Dear Senator Leahy,
On behalf of women and girls around the world, thank you for your leadership in securing U.S. funding for UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund. Your support for UNFPA will allow millions to access the sexual and reproductive health services and information they need.
The world relies on your support, and I urge you to continue to stand strong for every woman’s right to a just and healthy life.
