April 2020 Global Laser Talk: An Invitation to Lobby With RESULTS
Engage: This month, we were able to hear from Nick Kristof of the NY Times about the potential of this moment to create real change during a time of pandemic and stress.
Problem: Understandably, people are mired in the feeling that they can’t do anything about an issue like poverty and can’t do much during a pandemic which could have a big effect on marginalized and vulnerable populations.
Illustrate or Inform: To combat this, we are planning to meet with our congressional legislators and ask them to weigh in both on the global poverty appropriations process and the ways that the Phase 4 coronavirus pandemic stimulus can be geared toward helping those most affected.
Call to Action: Would you be interested in joining us? By being part of our meeting, you could feel more empowered, and we would be stronger with your voice.
