New Mexico Oxfam Action Corps Volunteers Lobby for Food Aid Reform

New Mexico OxfamAction Corps on Capitol Hill
Albuquerque residents Kathy Chavez, Amanda Dezan and Juliana Bilowichez were among the dozens of volunteers from Oxfam Action Corps who visited Capitol Hill this week to urge our senators to support Senate Bill 525, the Food for Peace Reform Act of 2015.

The measure would free up frees up as much as $440 million per year to feed up to 12 million more people faster and at a lower cost

Albuquerque is one of 16 cities where Oxfam Action Corps has a presence. Oxfam appointed  Chavez as one of four peer advisors nationally. She will be working with Dezan and  Bilowichez to organize New Mexico Oxfam Action Corps activities in 2015-2016.
