Lobby with FCNL this August

July 10, 2017

This September, the House and Senate will be debating spending bills and working to pass a budget. If leading voices in this debate get their way, that budget will slash spending on critical domestic programs, including Medicaid and SNAP, in order to justify massive increases in an already bloated pentagon budget. But before they make these decisions, members of Congress spend five weeks at home, and have an opportunity to hear from some of the most important voices on this issue: yours.

We need everyone to meet with their members of Congress and their staff this September to tell them that there is no justification for a budget that prioritizes the Pentagon over people. Here’s how to join:
