2016 is a critical year for making sure that hunger and poverty are on the platforms of candidates aspiring to public office. The unique season of elections in the United States as well as elections in countries like Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria, Jamaica, Haiti, Niger, and the Dominican Republic are opportunities to make changes that address inequities and empower women and girls. This event will help lift the voices and organize Pan-African women of faith and enable them to influence the platforms of candidates.
This consultation will:
Pan-African women are disproportionately affected by hunger and poverty, and our hope is to partner with them in their leadership to respond to the injustices and disparities in our local and global communities.
Participants will hear from Pan-African women leaders from around the world and reflect and organize for participation in this year’s important elections. Participants will include women from various generations, regions (global/domestic), classes, levels of education, and Christian faith groups.

Climate Change Worsens Hunger in Latino/a Communities
Climate change threatens the traditions and lifestyles of Indigenous people.
While climate change impacts everyone, regardless of race, policies and practices around climate have historically discriminated against and excluded people of color.
“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in faith.” These words from Colossians 2:6 remind us of the faith that is active in love for our neighbors.
The Bible on...
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to respond to changes in need, making it well suited to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
