Commitment to Action

The Commit in September Campaign

Commitment by

Millennium Campus Network

In 2010, the Millennium Campus Network (MCN) committed to developing The Commit in September Campaign, an online petition-based campaign designed to rally young people around the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and urge President Obama and Congress to act on their promises to the world's poor. MCN will disseminate this campaign through Ambassador Groups, which are student organizations already affiliated with MCN, and engaging media online. MCN will include three specific policy requests related to the MDGs on the campaign: that the President and Congress support a Global Fund for Education, that they fully fund the Global Fund for AIDS, TB, and Malaria, and that they commit to a long-term development plan for Haiti beyond humanitarian relief.
