11th Hour for the Budget: Write Your Senator Today
"Your calls and e-mails proclaiming that budgets are moral documents are working! Now, as a final agreement on the federal budget could be reached as early as this week, we as people of faith must raise our voices louder than ever and speak up once again to defend our values!
Thanks to your calls and e-mails, we've made great strides toward protecting programs such as Medicaid, and we've proven to leaders in Washington that prophetic voices for social and economic justice are alive and well in America today. It is now the 11th hour, and many senators are wavering as to whether they will stand up for our values. We need you to encourage them to do the right thing by protecting Medicaid, Food Stamps, the Earned Income Tax Credit, SSI, child care, affordable housing, and countless other programs that serve low-income Americans.
E-mail your senators today and ask them to stand up for the biblical principles of social justice by telling their party leaders they will vote "no" on a budget resolution that is out of touch with our values.
