We will be talking taxes this Thursday, July 19, and we hope you will join us on our Bread National Grassroots conference call and webinar.
There has been a lot of buzz on Capitol Hill around tax revenues and cuts this week. During this call and webinar, you will learn more about Bread for the World's belief that taxes must be grounded on the Bible, and budgets must be seen as moral documents that affect people who are experiencing hunger and poverty. With the Circle of Protection, we have affirmed that the long-term projected deficits can be reduced without cutting programs focused on hungry and poor people.
How our nation addresses our current budgetary deficits will have far reaching consequences for hungry and poor people both here and abroad. It is vital that Christian advocates are part of the national dialogue seeking solutions that can either increase or decrease poverty. Join us Thursday at 4 p.m. EST (1 p.m. PST) and hear from our policy expert, Amelia Kegan, on what is happening in Congress, and what tax policies and programs can best support ending hunger. You will also here from the LaVida Davis, director of organizing, on how your voice can make the most impact. You will also have a time to ask all of your questions.
The first step in building an advocacy movement that can end hunger in our time is educating ourselves and taking action.
We will be live-tweeting the webinar/conference call as well with the hashtag #BreadWeb
