Stand Against Poverty is the growing movement of people no longer prepared to stay silent in the face of poverty and inequality. It is a worldwide call to make poverty history and to meet or exceed the Millennium Development Goals. Over ten years have passed since world leaders committed to reach these international goals, but every day, 50000 people die as a result of extreme poverty.
