From the Millennium Campaign:

In remarks broadcast Sunday, September 12, 2010, on the nationally-syndicated Day1 program, the 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, calls upon the faith community to take action against global hunger by supporting the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). “The Millennium Development Goals target poverty, hunger, and disease,” President Carter explains, “while encouraging universal primary education and fairness for women and girls.” The MDGs “are backed by global consensus, and have the strong support of all the world’s major religious groups.”
