Stop the Madness!

Rev. David Beckmann has a message for you about the recent Budget proposals that would cut anti-hunger programs. YOU can tell Congress to stop this madness! Call (800/826-3688) or email your members of Congress now.

Here is the basic message, but personalize it if you can:

I am deeply concerned by the Trump Administration's proposed budget outline, which includes deep and disproportionate cuts to critical foreign assistance programs and puts our domestic social safety net programs at risk.

Right now, 20 million people are at risk of starvation due to famine in South Sudan and other African countries. In the U.S., 1 in 6 children live at risk of hunger. My faith calls me to urge you to maintain our investments in international development and domestic nutrition programs.

These programs are helping millions of people escape from hunger. As Congress works on the 2018 budget and spending bills, reject cuts to life-saving programs like international development and domestic nutrition programs.
