Take time to visit your senators and representative in their local offices during the summer. The most effective advocacy is an in-person meeting! Urge them to protect funding for programs for hungry people.
- As Congress makes decisions about reducing the deficit and raising the nation’s debt ceiling, please establish a Circle of Protection around funding for programs for hungry and poor people, exempting them from budget cuts.
- Ask your member of Congress to please take a balanced approach to reducing our deficits by considering revenues and spending cuts, and opposing any proposals that cap all federal spending.
- You can also leave this message at their Washington offices through the Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121.
