The 2014 Farm Bill adopted after strenuous negotiations by House and Senate conferees authorized an $80 million annual program over five years to make local and regional purchases of U.S. food aid. GlobalSolutions.org members lobbied for this change, sending messages to over 168 Members of Congress, asking they support lifting food aid restrictions that have limited our capacity to feed millions and support sustainable local food markets.

As requested by our members, the reforms build on a 2008 pilot program carried out in part by the UN's World Food Program that showed that we could provide aid at half the cost and delivery time in both emergency and non-emergency settings.

Thousands of you told President Obama that you wanted the United States to help stop armed conflict around the world and sign the Arms Trade Treaty. On September 25, 2013, Secretary of State John Kerry signed the treaty on behalf of the US.  By signing this important agreement, the US, as the world’s largest arms dealer, will put pressure on other major buyers and sellers such as Russia, China and India to join the treaty as well. The US’s signature will add momentum to our efforts to get at least 50 nations to join or ratify the Arms Trade Treaty so it can go into effect.

Our 2013 #CoverClimate campaign bombarded the executive producers of the three major broadcast networks with requests for more coverage on the impact of climate change - and they heard you!

As reported by Media Matters, there was a 300% increase in segments on climate coverage in 2013 than in 2012/. The majority of this coverage focused on climate change's relation to extreme weather or impacts on wildlife. In 2012, ABC, CBS and NBC provided less than an hour of coverage to climate issues; in 2013, storied on climate change was covered for almost 2 hours during the networks nightly newscasts. NBC Nightly News outpaced both ABC and CBS, airing roughly 52 minutes of climate change coverage. ABC World News actually cut its climate change coverage in half in 2013 over the previous year, reporting on this issue for less than 10 minutes.
