Mike Batell, our Faith Outreach Organizer in the Minneapolis office, recently traveled to Madison, WI for the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness Conference - (NSCAHH).  On Saturday, he had a chance to talk to students about reform of the farm bill.  He encouraged students to take out their cell phones on the spot and call their senators about the bill.  Over 160 calls came in from students! After the general sessions, laptops were set up and students could invite their friends on Facebook to make a call!  5,000 people have received the message on Facebook as of today!

Check out the blog about the conference.
