Stand Up Against Poverty
September 26th, 2009
Millions of people around the world will Stand Up and Take Action from October 16 to 18 to show their support for the fight against poverty and for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
This year a deepening financial crisis and a slowing global economy pose great challenges for development in general and for the MDGs in particular.
In 2007, 47 million people Stood Up. Last year, 116 million people Stood Up and Took Action.
Join them in 2009. For information and suggestions go to www.standagainstpoverty.org
