I had the honor & privilege to stand with Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter on behalf of The ONE Campaign to announce that Philadelphia has proclaimed itself a “ONE City”. Cofounded by U2’s Bono and other campaigners, ONE was launched five years ago in Philadelphia.

With Mayor Nutter signing the ONE City proclamation, Philadelphia joins more than 130 cities across the nation working to mobilize public support behind initiatives to fight poverty, combat diseases like AIDS and malaria, put children in school and increase opportunity for those living in extreme poverty around the world.
