Day 6: Sign the Petition and Become One in a Million for a Billion

If you believe that everyone should have access to contraceptives and reproductive health services you are not alone.  More than 20 organizations advocating for international family planning assistance have joined together in an effort to collect a million signatures this year in support of a $1 billion U.S. appropriation for international family planning assistance.  That’s the minimum investment that’s need if the world is going to achieve universal access of family planning and reproductive health services by 2015 (the target year set the U.N. as part of the Millennium Development Goals).  Sign the petition and help us collect a million signatures this year.
