Bread for the World’s 2012 Offering of Letters urges members of Congress to create a circle of protection around programs that give hungry and poor people in this country and abroad the tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty.
Within this broader campaign are four mini-campaigns that address specific legislative topics that will come before Congress in 2012: nutrition, poverty-focused development assistance, tax policy, and food aid.
“The materials we have developed for the 2012 Offering of Letters are wonderful resources for activists and other people of faith who want to protect the world’s most vulnerable people,” said Bread for the World President David Beckmann. Materials include a handbook, videos, instructions on how to plan an Offering of Letters, and stories of people struggling to lift themselves out of poverty.

We are planning a workshop in Albuquerque sometime March. Stay tuned for more details.
