The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on Thursday whether to kick 4 to 6 million Americans off the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The proposed food stamps budget cut would have a devastating impact on seniors, children, the unemployed, and low-wage working families.
The grass-roots anti-poverty group RESULTS is organizing a national call-in day on Tuesday, September 17 to to send a strong message to Congress not to cut $40 billion over the next ten years from SNAP.
Please take a few minutes on Tuesday to let your voice be heard. All the information you need to contact your U.S. representative is available at this link: http://tinyurl.com/SNAPcall
SNAP is the first line of defense against hunger in the United States. It's also one of the most efficient federal programs, with an accuracy rate of 96 percent.
By identifying and promoting the most effective solutions to poverty, RESULTS works to build a world where the impacts of poverty no longer cripple the ability of individuals and families to sustain themselves and contribute their talents to the world.
