A. Ask our Representatives to pass a STRONG 2023 Farm Bill to support people facing
hunger. The farm bill is the cornerstone anti-hunger legislation at the national level.
Every five years, Congress has the chance to strengthen critical federal nutritional
programs. These include the Emergency Food Assistance (TEFAP) which sends food
from farms to food banks – critical assistance. Also, the Supplementation Nutrition
Assistance Program (SNAP) which provides monthly grocery assistance to 40 million
people. And the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) which sends boxes of
nutritious food to seniors. Insist our Representatives support a STRONG Farm Bill in

B. Demand our House Representative support the EACH Act!!! The Each Act is the Equal
Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance. This is the first piece of abortion
access legislation introduced in the new Congress. It would end the Hyde Amendment –
an archaic, decades-old provision that bans abortion coverage for people enrolled in
Medicaid and other federal programs – and the EACH Act would prohibit the federal
government from interfering with private insurance companies that choose to cover
abortion care. Insist that our representative support the EACH Act!!

C. Demand our House Representative denounce HR-1 – The “polluters over people” Act!
HR-1, nominally called the “Lower Energy Costs Act” would gut land and water
protections, fast track permitting for oil drilling and mineral leasing on federal land,
weaken state and tribal authority under the Clean Water Act, Cut over $20 Billion from
the Inflation Reduction Act for programs that allow homeowners to get rebates for
installing energy efficient appliances, provides training programs for home energy
efficiency improvements and cuts assistance to make buildings more climate friendly.
Insist our Representative signals non-support for this bill!!

D. Ask our Representatives show support for the PRO Act! The PRO Act is the Protecting
the Right to Organize Act. It would make it easier for workers to exercise their right to
unionize and bargain collectively, while holding corporations accountable for violating
workers’ rights. The act would secure free, fair and safe union elections. Get ALL of our
Representatives to work to PASS the PRO ACT!
