Tell Colorado’s Members of Congress: Vote NO on House Budget Resolution

The time has come for a final push against the House budget resolution that includes harmful cuts to essential support programs. The House will be voting on its 2018 resolution this Thursday, October 5. As a reminder, the resolution proposes to cut food stamps by a total of $150 billion over the next decade, with the general suggestion that increased flexibility to states could provide savings through ‘block’ or ‘opportunity’ grants, which translate to limited, capped funding for the program.

Tell the House to vote NO on the Budget Resolution!

In July we asked you to contact your representatives to tell them to vote against these cuts. Your response was staggering, with many of you engaging to do your part to advocate for proven and effective anti-hunger programs.

The time has come again for state and national partners to mobilize to oppose this resolution at all costs. Before Thursday, we need you to:

Contact your Representative before this Thursday and tell them to oppose the House Budget Resolution, as it would be harmful to the hundreds of thousands of Coloradans who rely on programs like food stamps to reach their full human potential.

Unified pressure from every congressional district is needed to encourage our Members of Congress to vocally oppose this resolution. Your email or phone call could change a House Member’s stance and spare these programs that support Coloradans’ health and well-being.

Thank you for taking a couple minutes to protect your neighbors and fellow Coloradans who use these programs.
