Anti Poverty Training

A Golden Opportunity for All Californians!
Hunger Action LA Invites You to A Free -
Anti-Poverty Advocacy Training

Punishing people living in extreme poverty by
withholding access to food and other assistance
is WRONG!

The training will discuss proposed policies designed to help
poor people in California and how you can speak to elected
officials, reporters, and friends & family about them:

  • Lifting the Lifetime Ban on Food Benefits for Non-violent
    Drug Felonies (SB 1029)
  • Restoring the State Supplement Payment (SSP) Cost of Living
    Adjustments (COLA) for seniors and disabled
  • Other proposals to fight poverty and improve access to healthy food.

A (usually) weekly update on food issues, promoting access to sufficient, affordable, healthy food ---with a focus on campaigns you can become active in!

 

March 31, 2014:

 

Cesar Chavez Day: As we honor the great farmworker leader today, a new food worker justice movement spearheaded by the Food Chain Workers Alliance is honoring the occasion by delivering a petition with 101,000 signatures and a letter signed by 100 food justice organizations including HALA to House Speaker John Boehner calling for a vote on raising the minimum wage. Joann Lo, the group’s director, reminds us in this article that “The nation's 20 million food workers make up one-sixth of the workforce in the U.S., making the food system the largest employer in the country. At the same time, over one-third of food system workers are paid less than $10.10 and make up the largest sector of minimum wage workers. “
