Bill and Melinda Gates have launched a lobbying organization to advocate for issues in health, education, and poverty, The Hill reported on Thursday.
The Gates Policy Initiative, which was announced on Thursday, will work with lawmakers on issues such as global health, global development, moving people from poverty to employment, and education for black, Latino, and rural students. The initiative, which will be a 501(c)(4) organization under the US tax code, is independent from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the billionaire couple's philanthropic organization.
Rob Nabors, director of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the former White House director of Legislative Affairs during the Obama administration, told The Hill that the Gates Policy Initiative will work in a bipartisan way.
