Today, we launched a 'Call to Action' campaign for the reauthorization of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) which is set to expire in September 2015, and we are running out of time. AGOA is a cornerstone of the U.S.-Africa commercial relationship to increase investments, strengthen the private sector, reduce trade barriers, and the reduction of poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa. Since AGOA was enacted, seven of the world's ten fastest growing economies are in Sub-Saharan Africa creating 1.3 million jobs.
 
Leadership Africa USA, Africare, Bechtel, Bread for the World, Chevron, Constituency for Africa, Manchester Trade, New Markets Lab, Partnership to Cut Hunger and Poverty in Africa, The Africa Society, The Corporate Council on Africa, the U.S.-Angola Chamber of Commerce, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Witney Schneidman (former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs) are supporting this 'Call to Action' for the reauthorization of AGOA to continue as a catalyst for economic development and improved governance between the United States and Sub-Saharan Africa.

 We hope you will be part of this and join the campaign to reauthorize AGOA by using the hashtag #ProAGOA on your social media.
