3rd Trimester Planning
DescriptionThis is a new Congress (the 116th). It's time to meet new members of Congress (MoCs) and deepen relationships with existing MoCs. And what's more exciting for new advocates than meeting with MoCs or their staff? Not much--so invite them to join you!The President's budget will likely cut development assistance. Congress is the firewall. We must mobilize as many MoCs as possible in support of appropriations sign on letters!House SFOPS deadline is 3/28. We must get Reps to submit requests and sign on to sign on letters. Senate Appropriations all month!We need to ensure that the House and Senate increase funding for the Global Fund in 2020 to $1.56 billion. We can do that with appropriations requests and the media.Time to prepare for the IC: Set up meetings, build our local delegations, gather letters to bring to DC, make travel arrangements, set up lobby prep. calls with staff.Let's go to the IC and leverage the ICGroups follow up on the IC requests, schedule recess meetings, and work to generate media in all 50 states on the Global Fund. Full speed: Global Fund media and resolutions
-Groups decide how many new advocates they want to recruit by the end of the year, then receive coaching and support to use organizing tactics and our campaign actions to create transformational experiences and new group members.-
-We need to generate political will in Congress on the Global Fund so the world knows they can count on the US for leadership.

-While we work on the Global Fund, let's make plans to grow our groups--who in our networks is ready to take the next step in their advocacy? Let's give them the opportunity to experience something transformational.
