Write Your Letters To Your Congress Members

Write Letters to Congress

This year is critical.  Your Justice Committee right here at University Lutheran Church and Lutheran Campus Ministry are encouraging you to help fight hunger among our youth.... our youth right here in the United States and around the world.

Your letters might include the urgent request similar to the following:

As you consider the 2016 budget and renewing child nutrition programs this year, I urge you to make sure children at risk of hunger can get the healthy meals they need to learn and grow.

Specifically, I urge you to protect child nutrition programs from cuts and harmful policy changes and improve children's access to these programs while not cutting other safety-net programs. SNAP (formerly food stamps), serves nearly 21 million children. I urge you to protect SNAP and other anti-poverty programs from harmful budget and funding cuts. 

Nutrition programs serve as a lifeline for America's vulnerable children and their families. As your constituent, I urge you to protect and improve child nutrition programs.

How to do this:

1. You can write physical letters.  Bring them to Church, place them in the offering plate.  We will present them during our Worship service as an offering which we will mail collectively right after the service. Where can I find the correct mailing address?  Click here... just under the picture in the center column you can enter your zip code to find the addresses of yoru Congress Members.

2. You can use the "Write Your Congress" function located on the Bread For the World's website.  Click here to find out more information.

3.  Follow the Bills and make your own comments heard directly to the Congressional Aids.  Go to PopVox and type HUNGER in the search box in the upper right corner to follow the current bills and leave your support.  Forbes Magazine calls this site one of the most important online sites that Congress Members actually pay attention to.

We hope that all folks this Sunday will at least use Option One to let your voice be heard this Sunday.  YOUR LETTERS WILL HAVE AN IMPACT.
