Who We Are
The 2030 Collaborative focuses on promoting awareness, providing education, and encouraging advocacy for the 17 U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including those related to poverty, health, hunger, education, clean water, sanitation, and peace and justice.
The moral rationale to protect and increase U.S. governmental funding for global health and development is a critical argument for our policymakers. For this reason, galvanizing the faith community and its leaders is an essential component to a strong advocacy strategy for any issue. With longtime relationships across the nation, the 2030 Collaborative nurtures, educates, and activates notable leaders across the faith community (actors, athletes, authors, pastors, professors, non-profit leaders, speakers, etc.) to take a stand for the expediency of addressing global health and development policy and funding goals to achieve a better, safer, and more sustainable world for everyone.
We aid in building relationships to strengthen advocacy for social justice issues in the faith, university, and private sector arenas, and we will advise and implement strategies to influence policy and funding.
