Established in 2005 by President Bill Clinton, the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) convenes global leaders to create and implement solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. To date, members of the CGI community have made more than 3,700 Commitments to Action that have made a difference in the lives of more than 435 million people in more than 180 countries.
This September, for the first time since 2016, CGI will convene alongside the United Nations General Assembly. During this meeting, more than 1,000 attendees will come together to drive action on climate change, inclusive economic growth, health equity, the refugee crisis, and more.
Hillary Rodham Clinton will announce the Freedom Fund’s new commitment to dramatically expand our Survivor Leadership Fund – the first of its kind in the anti-slavery movement – to US$10 million by 2030. The Fund will provide at least 300 survivor-led organisations around the world with unrestricted grants, allowing them to expand and grow their community-based interventions. Walk Free and Stardust Fund have each pledged US$1 million for the initiative. The Freedom Fund has also pledged an initial US$1 million, bringing combined seed funding to US$3 million, with the goal of raising an additional US$7 million by 2030.
