Bread for the World
This annual gathering will include discussion of both local and national food and hunger issues and tools for advocacy with our elected members of Congress.
There will be time for conversation with special guest from the office of Senator Bob Casey (invited).
The 2011 Offering of Letters campaign will encourage both parties in Congress and the President to work together to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of U.S. foreign assistance. We will also continue to work for the funding needed to tackle hunger, health problems, and child malnutrition in poor countries.
The April 9th workshop will offer materials, key information, and creative learning experiences to equip you to organize an Offering of Letters in your church, campus, or group.
The program will also include presentations on local food and hunger issues, and workshops on advocacy skills.
Continental breakfast and lunch are included. (Suggested donation: $5, Students/Low Income: free)
Please pre-register by April 6: on-line or by phone: 610-433-6421.
Sponsored by Bread for the World and Lehigh County Conference of Churches (Justice and Advocacy Comm.), and Second Harvest. For further information, contact the LCCC office at 610-433-6421; or Bob Walden firstname.lastname@example.org.
