You don’t have to go all the way to D.C. to meet in-person with your representatives or senators.
Congress is leaving Washington for a recess, also referred to as a district or state “work period.” We like the word “work” in there because that’s exactly what we want them to do – get to work on ending poverty.
This is the perfect opportunity to schedule a meeting and tell your representative, face-to-face, to support policies that are proven to reduce poverty and save lives. We have the opportunity to:
Stand up and fight for the country and world you want to live in. Your representatives and senators need to hear from YOU during their work period. Their schedules will fill up quickly so don’t wait until it’s too late.
Tell your lawmakers that ending poverty here and everywhere should be at the top of their to-do list!
