Transparency needed from Texas to Africa to Philippines. This should improve things.



Dear Kevin,

I’ve got great news: The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced its decision to uphold a law that will empower all citizens, especially in Africa, with valuable information on government revenues that will help them hold their leaders accountable and make it harder for corrupt officials to divert these revenues away from spending on healthcare, schools and clean water.

This is a major breakthrough towards ending corruption and the result of the hard work of thousands of ONE members and our partners in the Publish What You Pay coalition pressuring the SEC to make the right decision. In fact, our petition was mentioned in the SEC’s decision. Just as we’ve done many times before, ONE members stepped up and made a big difference.

You can read more about what this important victory means for people in the developing world right here.

Thanks for all you do,

Jay Heimbach
US Government Relations, ONE
