NEW VIDEO: Meet Jonathan from Kentucky

Jonathan and his wife, Michelle, live in Oneida, Kentucky. Their congressional district is one of the most impoverished in the nation — and yet, Jonathan is speaking up in favor of foreign aid. Watch the video to see why:


If you agree with Jonathan, like and share the above video. Hover over the video to see options.

Jonathan’ll be the first to tell you that Oneida has its own share of problems and poverty. As a town built around coal mining, there’s a lot of poverty. But he’ll also be the first to tell you that what makes that town special is the good-hearted people who know what it’s like to struggle and are still committed to helping their neighbors and others halfway around the world.

The president’s proposed cuts to foreign aid – nearly ⅓ – would be disastrous for those living in extreme poverty. Millions suffering from famine would be denied life-saving food aid. Girls wouldn’t be able to go to school. Kids wouldn’t be able to receive vaccines.

Congress can stop these cuts – but only if we speak out. Share the above video if you agree with Jonathan: It’s America’s job to do America’s part.
