October 1, 2010 at 6:58 pm Leave a comment

Congress has punted major decisions about child nutrition programs and tax credits for low-income families until after the November 2 elections. What now? Find out this Monday, October 4, from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time in our monthly Bread for the World Western Region Grassroots Conference Call.
 
We’ll talk about what we can expect when Congress reconvenes in November for a “lame duck session” and discuss effective ways you can engage candidates about hunger and poverty as campaign season gets into full swing.

To dial in, simply call 1-800-704-9804. When prompted, enter 78674441#

Thanks as always for what you do, and have a lovely and safe Federal Fiscal New Year.

Peace and Blessings,
Matt and Robin

What is the monthly Western Regional Grassroots Conference Call?

The Western Regional Grassroots Conference Call occurs the first Monday of each month at 6 p.m. Pacific Time. It’s a great way to:

  • Hear about what other Bread members are doing around the region and exchange ideas about what works.
  • Get legislative updates on Bread’s campaigns.
  • Connect with others who are working to eliminate the conditions that allow poverty to persist.

What does Bread mean by “Western region?”
Bread’s Western region includes Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. For a full list of Bread’s regional offices, click here: http://www.bread.org/about-us/contact/regional.html

Who should dial in?
Anyone is welcome to call in. Here are some examples of situations you might find yourself in that would make it worth your time to call in:

  • You have an upcoming Offering of Letters and need current updates about what’s happening on our campaign.
  • You’re part of a Bread for the World team or group and would like the latest information about what’s happening around the region and in Washington, DC.
  • You’re seeking ideas about how to get people in your faith community engaged in hunger advocacy and want to hear stories from people about how they were able to succeed.
  • You’re just very dedicated to Bread’s vision of a world without hunger and want to learn more and connect with other like-minded folks.

What if you can’t make the call?
No problem. We record each call and post them here a day or two after the call.

I need to make dinner. How long do these calls last?
We respect your time and will make sure the call is done in 30 minutes, though Robin and Matt will stay afterward for 15 minutes for Q&A.
