Planned Parenthood of New York City Seeks Political Organizer

About Global Citizen

Our vision is a world without extreme poverty by 2030.

Global Citizen is an international campaigning and advocacy organization whose mission is to increase the number and effectiveness of people taking action against extreme poverty by 2030.

Through our mix of content and events, grassroots organizing, and extensive reach through our digital channels, we are building the world’s largest movement for social action. Since 2012, Global Citizens around the world have taken over six million actions to solve the world’s biggest challenges. The actions by our global community along with ours and partners’ high-level advocacy efforts have resulted in 130 commitments and policy announcements from leaders, including financial aid valued at over $25.6 billion that is set to affect the lives of 656 million people.

We are inspired by the incredible progress achieved by the global community in halving the percentage of people living in extreme poverty in the last 30 years. We know that the injustice of living on less than USD $1.90 a day can be ended by 2030.

We believe that when an organized, critical mass of individuals in society aspire to the values of Global Citizen, and when they are organized and equipped to take meaningful action, we can change the policies and practices that contribute to keeping people in extreme poverty.
