From the District 1120 Polio Team

On 27 September, world leaders will gather in New York City for the United Nations General Assembly. Polio eradication will be discussed. Now is our chance to tell the governments of the world to fund the final push needed to finally eradicate polio.
Rotarians, the world over, their partners, their friends, are being asked take just a moment to sign the following petition at:
The aim is to gather 1 million signatures to be presented to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as a show of solidarity and support at a special polio event during the UN General Assembly.
