Provides a largely secular explanation of how Bread for the World carries out its advocacy with Congress. Explains the legislative process at the federal level and how Bread activists, as constituents of their federal representatives, can engage at various points in the process. Answers the questions: Why advocacy? Does advocacy work? What can I do? Provides practical actions that people can take. A good companion to this piece is The Biblical Basis for Advocacy to End Hunger, which provides a more religious-focused justification for engaging in advocacy.
