Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Toward a Faithful Budget: Having an Influence

Webinar DavidBy LaVida Davis

President Obama recently released his budget, and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) just released a report evaluating America's social safety net. As the budget debate begins, now is the time to bring our voices of faith to the discussion, or ending hunger will become a casualty of the negotiations over the fiscal year 2015 budget.

Join us this month for a special budget-focused conference call and webinar, Toward a Faithful Budget: Having an Influence. Our experts will review the current budget proposals and how anti-hunger programs fare in them. We'll provide practical actions you can take to influence your member of Congress and explain the budget timeline.

Our vision is a world without hunger. We have seen the strength of faith-filled advocacy in protecting funding for anti-hunger programs as Congress has proposed cut after cut. Your advocacy matters and makes a difference. Join us this month to learn how you can impact hunger in the budget again.

Submit your questions ahead of time to organizing coordinator Marion Jasin at mjasin@bread.org. Check out our comprehensive how-to guide on the webinar conference call and register today.

LaVida Davis is the director of organizing and grassroots capacity building at Bread for the World.
