CARE's National Day of Action will take place on October 17, the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. On this day, events around the world will promote solidarity with people who struggle with extreme poverty every day.
This year, supporters will gather to send a strong message to the next president of the United States that Americans care deeply about the plight of the world's poor. They will sign a letter that urges the next administration to re-engage with the world, re-establish moral leadership and, once again, lead by the power of example rather than the example of power.
