Spotted: White House Moon Bounce on GW’s Campus
ONE Vote ’16 set up the bounce house to engage voters on poverty issues
An adult-size moon bounce depicting the White House rolled onto George Washington University’s campus on Monday.
ONE Vote ’16 set up the bounce house at GW’s University Yard to engage D.C. voters on issues of extreme poverty ahead of the November election. The group’s election caravan will visit key congressional districts and battleground states.
It’s sponsored by ONE, a nonpartisan organization that says its mission is to ensure the next president has a strategy for fighting extreme poverty, especially in Africa.
The campaign is also providing a virtual reality experience on the tour that depicts a day in the life of Doris, a woman living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.
ONE was co-founded by U2 lead singer Bono, who testified on Capitol Hill in April about the role foreign aid plays in fighting violent extremism.
In March, ONE brought celebrities to Capitol Hill for International Women’s Day, including actress Danai Gurira from AMC’s “Walking Dead,” for its “Poverty is Sexist” initiative.
