A bipartisan group of 50 members of the House of Representatives that had co-sponsored the Global Food Security Act, H.R.1567. This initiative seeks to advance women's leadership in agriculture, promotes policies that improve their opportunities to use and own land, and strengthens their access to financial services.

None of the three members of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Mexico had cosponsored the Global Food Security Act as of Monday, July 20. Please take a minute to contact your own New Mexico House member and ask him/her to cosponsor H.R. 1567.  Bread for the World has provided this handy link to send your message. 

(And if you live outside of New Mexico, and your representative is not on the list of 50 cosponsors, please use the link to contact him/her).

"We need 100 cosponsors before the House adjourns for its August recess," said Bread for the World. "You can help us get there!"
