ONE is a new effort by Americans to rally Americans – ONE by ONE – to fight the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty. ONE is students and ministers, punk rockers and NASCAR moms, Americans of all beliefs and persuasions, united as ONE to help make poverty history.

ONE is a broad movement of Americans from every state and walk of life —more than one million Americans have joined ONE since April 2005, and over 1.5 million have lent their voices to ONE by visiting ONE.org and signing the ONE Declaration. More than two million Americans are also wearing white bands as a show of support for ending extreme poverty and global AIDS. ONE is Americans spreading the word in churches, coffee shops, on television, college campuses and the Internet. Go to one.org to find out more.
