Discuss what's next for the campaign in light of the election results. Can you be on the call? Reply to this email if you can join in on Thursday: There was a historic release of International Monetary Fund resources called Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) last year. Over 100 low-income countries have already used their SDRs, and leaders of many of these countries are calling for more. More than twice as many people are now facing acute food insecurity than were in 2019. Another release of SDRs could help change that. Recently there have been renewed calls for the release of SDRs to help countries cope with the climate crisis. Join the Zoom Meeting at with a Meeting ID of 870 6437 6957, and a Password: 041036.
