Offering of Letters 2013
Join in and participate in the Offering of Letters. In order to achieve dramatic progress against hunger and poverty, we must influence how our congress and government deploys its resources and power.
Churches, individuals and groups across the country are encouraged to write personal letters and emails to their members of Congress on issues that are important to hungry and poor people such as Domestic Nutrition Assistance Programs, Poverty-Focused Foreign Assistance Tax Credits for Low-Income Families and International Food Aid Programs.
These letters send a powerful message to our country’s political leaders and help us as a nation move closer to our goal of ending hunger. We are driven by our faith to make our voices heard in Congress and to make our nation’s laws more compassionate to people in need. Since the 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.
