Save the Date! July 20th Anti-Hunger "Rolling Rally" to Pass a COVID-19 Pkg that #BoostSNAPNow
The U.S. Senate is back in session next week. Our national partners at the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC) are coordinating with national organizations on "Rolling Rally" to get the Senate to pass a strong COVID-19 bill that includes boosting SNAP. Of course we have two terrific U.S. Senators who will fight for us. We also get some public noise going through other elected officials - local Mayors and City Councils, State Legislators as well as Governor Baker! And many of us work with local groups or associations that have national affiliates who can make SNAP-noise too!
- Call both Senator Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren on July 20th. Thank them - but also ask them to speak out on July 20th in support of a SNAP boost!
- In advance of July 20th, ask at least one local elected official (Mayor, State Rep, State Senator) to create a short selfie video and post it to Twitter, FB, Instagram on July 20th - and include the hashtag: #BoostSNAPNow
- Reach out to Governor Baker and urge him to include a strong ask for federal nutrition program funding in addition to state and local government fiscal relief.
- Reach out to at least one sister organization, economist, health care professional and ask them to go on social media on July 20th and #BoostSNAPNow
