|Sen. Udall's aide takes petitions, letters from Kristina Sowar|
While organizers could have waited until after the last concert to send the request to senators, there was urgency to send the message as soon as possible in order to have an impact on the appropriations process.
|Petitions brought to Sen. Heinrich's office|
According to the letter, the reductions proposed in the Trump budget would also cut food aid to those suffering from famine, turn girls away from school, and leave children without critical medication for treatable diseases.
"Foreign aid is not only an essential part of America's legacy, but also a wise security and economic decision," the letter added.
Sen. Udall is especially important because of his membership in the Senate Appropriations and Foreign Relations committees. Here is a letter that ONE supporters Kristina Sowar and Carlos Navarro brought to Sen. Udall's office on June 26, along with more than 740 signatures from New Mexicans who attended recent U2 concerts in Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and other venues. Below the letter to Sen. Udall is a letter that a ONE supporter wrote to Sen. Heinrich.
