Why we need you at “Hungry for Change: Day at the Capitol”

 

I’m not going to lie; I’m worried. I’m worried for our hungry neighbors. In these uncertain times, we need you more than ever to stand up and shake off your hesitation to be advocates. The stakes are too high for us to be passive bystanders.

I need you to show up at “Hungry for Change: Day at the Capitol” on Tuesday, Feb. 7. (More info below.) And, bring your friends and volunteers, your staff and boards, your community of faith. Heck, bring along your long-lost uncle, but just show up.

Yes, I know it’s an early morning. But you can do this! I’ll even buy you coffee and breakfast if you’re there on time. We start this early because of the legislature’s schedule.

Yes, I know you wonder if one person showing up will make any difference. But it does. I promise. Your presence will show our elected officials that there are allies standing alongside our hungry neighbors and that we not only care about hunger, but are paying attention to how they vote on issues that impact those experiencing hunger.

Yes, I know you feel apprehensive about “lobbying” or “advocating.” But, if not you, then who? Every time we try something new, it can be a bit scary, but I’m telling you, this is simple. All you need is concern about the issue of hunger. That’s it.

So, can your hungry neighbors and I count you in? If so, make sure to RSVP. I’ll see you there!

Best,
Kathy Underhill
CEO
Hunger Free Colorado
