How to Engage in Elections

The elections in 2014 (congressional) and 2016 (congressional and presidential) are vitally important to Bread for the World.

Bread wants to help end hunger by 2030, and to do that, it needs to help build the political will to make hunger a national priority by 2017. Bread hopes it can get a Congress and new president who are behind these goals. To do that, Bread began an elections strategy in advance of the 2014 midterm elections that will last through the 2016 election.

Bread is asking its members all over the country to engage all candidates on hunger and poverty issues during campaign seasons.

To equip Bread members to do this engagement, Bread is providing these materials:
