Friends, Now is the time to Shine a Light on Corruption!
For nearly two years, Micah Challenge worked to ensure that some really good rules to fight corruption would become law. The vehicle for this was a set of rules attached to Section 1504 of the Dodd Frank Act. The rules require companies in extractive industries (oil, gas, minerals, mining) to disclose payments made to foreign governments.
The rules would create the transparency needed to expose corruption in some of the most resources rich yet poorest nations in the world. Now is the time to shine a light on corruption related to natural resource extraction, and allow the immense revenue from natural resources to be spent fighting extreme poverty, rather than be pocketed!Read more
Climate change is impacting us all, the most vulnerable amongst us especially so. Climate change is such a massive challenge that it requires all of us to become a part of the solution.
Take the pledge to be a part of the climate solution, and we will use your pledge to challenge our leaders to do the same. We can't ask our next President and Congressional leaders to do something we ourselves aren't wiling to do.
Our ordinary actions together create extraordinary change. Commit to join us in learning, prayer and action to stop climate change from devastating the lives of our brothers and sisters around the world.
I choose to have hope for this beautiful world God has created
I commit to faithfully journey in prayer and action for the love of:
...our brothers and sisters suffering from the impacts of climate change
...our children who will inherit this world
...God and his beautiful creation
