Horrifying current events—like the hate and violence demonstrated in Charlottesville and the tragic truth that 40 million people around the world are locked in modern slavery—have reemphasized the urgent need for strong leadership to ensure equality for all both at home in the U.S. and abroad. We support the United Nations’ 17 sustainable development goals to transform our world.
