Great news: President Obama just released his FY'15 budget request to Congress, and it includes more than $2.5 billion in much-needed funding for UN Peacekeeping!
Considering crises are crippling places like South Sudan and the Central African Republic, the value of peacekeeping couldn't be clearer.
If you agree, thank President Obama for standing with UN peacekeepers by sending the message below.
Dear President Obama,
Thank you so much for including more funding for UN Peacekeeping in your FY'15 budget request to Congress. I was disappointed that the FY'14 omnibus spending package underfunded United Nations peacekeeping by 12 percent -- and zeroed out funds for the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali (MINUSMA).
Thank you,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
