About the 2012 Offering of Letters
This Lobby Day, join Bread for the World in Washington, DC, to ask Congress to create a circle of protection around programs for hungry and poor people in the U.S. and abroad. Since the 2010 elections, members of Congress have been primarily focused on reducing the federal deficit in order to balance the budget.
The deficit-reduction proposals Congress is considering could result in the most severe cuts to programs for hungry and poor people in Bread’s history.
Bread’s 2012 Offering of Letters is designed to respond to these challenges by making our advocacy as effective as possible. We are running several campaigns simultaneously so Bread members and activists can respond more quickly to what’s happening in Congress.
Our overall campaign focuses on protecting funding for programs for hungry and poor people. Within this broader campaign to create a circle of protection are four mini-campaigns that address specific legislative topics before Congress:
- domestic nutrition assistance
- poverty-focused foreign assistance
- tax credits for low-income families
- international food aid
Join Bread for the World in asking Congress to create a circle of protection around vital programs for hungry and poor people in the United States and abroad.
