Oregon Bread team Training, Sat March 19th in Portland

There will be an Oregon Bread Team Training this Saturday at the Kennedy School in Portland. Space is still available, so register now! The registration deadline is this Thursday.

Do you want to organize hunger out of existence? Bread President Rev. David Beckmann calls this work God’s saving presence in world history and likens it to the deliverance of the Hebrew people from slavery: “God sent Moses to Pharaoh with a political challenge: To let the slaves go free.”

To end the enslavement of so many of our brothers and sisters around the world in hunger and poverty, we need to change the laws and structures that keep them poor. As Beckmann says, “We can’t foodbank our way out of hunger.”

So what can you do? Join with others and unleash your passion to end hunger in our time this Saturday, March 19, at the Kennedy School in Portland. City by city, congressional district by congressional district, we will organize teams of volunteer leaders to help win changes in U.S. policy that move us toward the goal of ending hunger in our time. Will you join us?

Register now for the Oregon Bread Team Training.
 
The scriptures teach us that we are one body with many parts. Each of us has a unique set of gifts to bring to the anti-hunger movement. Perhaps you’re a talented writer, a gifted speaker, a project manager, or a data geek. Or you may simply have a passion to answer God’s call to feed the hungry and clothe the naked, and want to learn more about what you can do. Individually, we may seem small, like mustard seeds. But together, with God’s help and grace, we can move mountains.
 
At the training, dozens of passionate Bread members and supporters will gather to learn practical skills: how to organize, educate, and advocate. We will set concrete goals and create strategic plans that will help achieve legislative improvements to end hunger.

Bread members from the Pacific Northwest have helped win countless victories that change the conditions that allow hunger to persist—from debt cancellation that gave hundreds of thousands of kids in Tanzania access to basic education, to helping ensure sufficient healthy food for pregnant mothers and young children here in the United States.

Will you join us in Portland this Saturday, March 19, to help write the next chapter of history?

Click here to register. Registration is free; we will provide morning coffee and lunch.

Thank you so much for your passion and dedication. Feel free to call or email with any questions.

Peace and Blessings,
Robin
