Bread Grassroots Activists in Western States Rock!

If you're active with Bread in these states:  AK, AZ, CO, HI, ID,  MT, NV, NM, OR, UT, WA, WY you're on that elite list.  Chances are you know other Bread activists in the region already. But if you don't, our regional organizers Matt Newell-Ching and Robin Stephenson offer you a chance to interact with others and get answers to pertinent questions each month (usually the first Monday) via a conference call.  One of those monthly calls has been scheduled for Monday, Oct. 4, from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time  

Here's the theme of Monday's call: 
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 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.
If you would like to participate,  simply call 1-800-704-9804. When prompted, enter 78674441#

And if you are unable to join in, the audio for these conversations is made available later through  this site (which as of Oct. 1 had the calls for May through August).
