One of the most powerful assets that any community has in the fight against hunger and poverty is its own voice...it’s your voice!
Our advocacy work helps connect community voices, issues and stories to elected officials and public policy-makers in the fight against hunger and poverty. The decisions of our elected officials and the policies they implement can either help or hinder the ability of our neighbors to overcome hunger and access the resources they need to strengthen their families. Share your story, add your voice to the conversation, and join us as we advocate for hungry families and individuals across metro Atlanta and north Georgia!

Contact your representatives.
It really is okay to call their offices or send an email and tell them your views on a particular issue. They will get the message and they do pay attention when they receive messages. No matter what side of an issue you support, you should always assume that the folks on the other side aren’t being shy about sharing their views. You should do the same! Find your local elected official.
Sign a petition, write a letter to the editor, or speak at a town hall forum.
It’s not enough to feel strongly about an issue – if you want to truly play a role in the outcome, it’s important to speak up and share your concerns.
