In order to accommodate as many activists as possible, we have added an additional time for our Grassroots Conference Call (and Webinar) tomorrow, Aug. 21. Now you can call in at 4 p.m. Eastern Time (that is 1 p.m. Pacific Time for the West Coast) or at 8 p.m. Eastern Time (5 p.m. Pacific Time).  Register now for the slot that best fits your schedule!

The monthly call is a great way to get the most recent update on the Offering of Letters, ask questions of our expert policy analysts from our government relations department and hear from your dedicated organizing staff and Bread members.  


Tune in for reports from activists who have been taking advantage of the August recess to visit their members of Congress in their local offices. They have been consistently asking for a circle of protection around programs for people experiencing hunger and poverty. 

Join us on Aug. 21 at a time that best fits your schedule and where you live.  We will now hold two conference calls on the third Tuesday of every month at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time (adjust for your local time zones).

If you are online, join us as we live tweet during the conference call. Just follow the hashtag #BreadWeb.

We look forward to your questions and our discussions as we share experiences in advocating for hungry and poor people.  Register Now!
