Tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 5, the Interreligious Working Group on Domestic Human Needs will hold a conference call on faithful advocacy and the fiscal cliff.

Cuts to vital programs that address hunger and poverty remain on the table as the president and Congress continue to work toward a budget deal. During tomorrow’s call, prominent voices in the faith and advocacy communities will talk about exactly what is at stake for hungry and poor people—both in the U.S. and abroad—in the current fiscal cliff negotiations.

Sister Simone Campbell, executive director of NETWORK and lead organizer of Nuns on the Bus; Ambassador Tony Hall, executive director of the Alliance to End Hunger; and Amelia Kegan, senior policy analyst at Bread for the World, will talk about the latest on the fiscal cliff negotiations, how the fiscal cliff affects the issues we care about, and why your voice as a faithful advocate matters. Rabbi Steve Gutow, president and CEO of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, will moderate the discussion.

The call begins at 4 p.m. ET tomorrow—information on joining is below. It’s a discussion that no faithful advocate will want to miss.
