What do we mean by empowerment? March 2
Generating local media attention about hunger issues is one of the most powerful ways we can raise awareness to end hunger—whether you live in a major metropolitan area such as New York City or a small town like Minot, North Dakota.
Some of Bread for the World's legislative victories simply would not have occurred without media attention. Media shapes the debate on national policy issues related to hunger.
Every member of Congress relies on local media to gauge public opinion on legislation and determine their constituents' priorities. One letter to the editor in a local newspaper can multiply the power of an individual's voice.
