Election Day is upon us! Rise Against Hunger has joined with a broad non-partisan coalition of individuals and organizations to urge our supporters to Vote to End Hunger. It’s not too late to join us in our commitment to asking candidates for public office: “If elected, what will you do to end hunger, alleviate poverty and create opportunity in the U.S. and worldwide?” At Rise Against Hunger, we believe that our goal of ending hunger by 2030 reaches across political parties and is a goal that everyone can support.
Every House of Representatives seat and 35 Senate seats will be decided on November 6. Let’s make our voices heard!
Here’s what you can do from right where you are:
- Take the Vote to End Hunger pledge
- Check out the Vote to End Hunger midterm elections toolkit
- Reach out to a candidate on social media to ask “If elected, what will you do to end hunger, alleviate poverty and create opportunity in the U.S. and worldwide?” or to show your support for ending hunger. (See the above mentioned toolkit for more info on how.)
- Research the candidates for office in your district. If you are interested in seeing who has supported ending hunger, here are a few resources you can check:
– See the bipartisan group of Representatives and Senators who co-sponsored the recently passed Global Food Security Reauthorization Act.
– Check out the lists of members of the bipartisan House Hunger Caucus and Senate Hunger Caucus.
– You can also visit campaign websites to learn more about the candidates in your district and the issues that are important to them.
- VOTE! For additional election resources, such as early voting schedules and a tool for finding your polling place, please visit Vote.org.
This November 6 (or sooner, if your state offers early voting), let’s make our voices heard and urge our political leaders to prioritize ending hunger and poverty around the globe.
