ONE Campus Organizer Maddy Vonhoff Visits New Mexico
Maddy Vonhoff, campus organizer for ONE, visited New Mexico at the end of August to develop contacts at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. ONE is seeking to create campus chapters at UNM and NMSU and community chapters in Albuquerque and Las Cruces. As part of that effort, Maddy (center) also held a meet-up at a local brew pub at UNM. Among those who attended were Sandee McCullough (to her left) and Sandra Perea (to her right).
The new generation of potential ONE activists (working with Maddy,community organizer Mike Hogan and new local campus and community leaders) would build on other efforts by ONE in Albuquerque to fight global poverty, including a U2 Agape Service in 2007, a table to promote the fight against global poverty on Earth Day in 2010, an effort to to make global health and extreme poverty foreign policy priorities in the 2012 presidential election, a campaign to gain signatures for the Electrify Africa initiative in 2015.There is more in store in 2016 and beyond, and you are invited to join local efforts to fight global poverty.
