Bono’s "ONE Vote" Calls for Action on Poverty


A group co-founded by rock star Bono is trying to get Wisconsin political candidates to address poverty issues this year. Laurie Moskowitz is part of the ONE Vote 2012 Campaign, which argues that candidates and voters can create lasting change in the world. Moskowitz says it’s in the best interest of the U.S. to promote widespread vaccination and disease management programs in developing nations.

Moskowitz admits that the United States has its own share of economic problems. The ONE Vote Campaign says that it has about 25,000 members in Wisconsin. It held a kick-off of its efforts in Milwaukee, this week.
