I am writing to urge you to send a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. How many times have you wanted to act upon your faith in response to the urgency of a crisis – and hesitated until the moment has passed. If you’re like me, too many times. Millions of Americans are out of work. One in four children does not have enough to eat every day. The hard-earned benefits of the elderly among us – our parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, neighbors and friends – are being threatened by cuts to programs that dramatically improve the quality of their lives.
Will you help?
Please click here to write a letter to the editor of your local paper asking for a Faithful Budget that preserves the dignity and protects the well-being of God’s most vulnerable people. We have set up a system to help make it easy for you to submit one.
Please forward this email to friends, family, and your faith community, and let us know if you submitted a letter.
With Faith in an Abundant Future,
Director, National Council of Churches Poverty Initiative
