On January 1, 2022, the Biden Administration plans to do the unthinkable: delist Ethiopia from AGOA, throwing the nation into poverty and destabilizing the livelihoods of everyday Ethiopians who are already dealing with a tragic conflict.
We have one final chance to reverse this decision. We must do everything we can to prevent the removal of AGOA benefits before irreparable damage is done.
Here are three ways you can take action today:
- Reach out to your representative directly and call for their help in defending AGOA, highlighting its importance. Click here to easily find your representative and here for email templates you can use.
- Sign our change.org petition urging the Biden administration to reverse its decision before it’s too late.
- Post about it using the AGOA social media toolkit asking your friends to sign the petition and reach out to their representatives.
AGOA supports livelihoods, businesses, and communities. Losing access will destabilize the Ethiopian economy and by extension have resounding effects on Sub-Saharan Africa.
It is vital our voices are heard now, while there is still time for this disaster to be avoided.
