Churches and the Elections

September 15, 2016

A list of nine things churches, their leaders, and members can do to be involved during the 2016 campaigns for Congress and the presidency. All items are geared toward electing members of Congress and a president from either party who will put our country on track to ending hunger by 2030 by making hunger and poverty a priority when they take office in 2017.

Suggested resources from Bread are provided for each item.
