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 Congressman Charles Dent (invited).
The 2012 Offering of Letters campaign will address specific legislative topics that will come before Congress in 2012: nutrition, poverty-focused development assistance, tax policy, and food aid.
The April 21st 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 18: Register on-line here or by phone: 610-433-6421.
