Advocacy Alert - April 2017
Wednesday, April 26, 2017 by Communications

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago joins in a national call-in day today to urge members of Congress to pass final spending bills for fiscal year 2017 before the Friday, April 28 deadline and to protect affordable housing investments and nutrition programs – among many others!
Call the congressional switchboard toll free at 202-224-3121.
Sample Script:
“Please work with your colleagues to pass a final spending bill for fiscal year 2017 that protects affordable housing investments and other vital programs at HUD and USDA. These resources keep roofs over heads, and insure access to nutritious food for low income families, seniors, people with disabilities, and other vulnerable people.
Funding these programs is a smart investment because they lead to better health and education outcomes and boosts economic mobility and the local economy.
Our communities are stronger because of these programs. Please do not put these resources at risk by failing to pass full-year spending bills by the April 28 deadline.
Thank you for all you do on behalf of our nation’s most vulnerable.”
If you would, please also take the time to let Catholic Charities know that you were able to make a call to your legislators on behalf of our clients. Feel free to please email smjohnson@catholiccharities.net with any feedback from engaging your elected officials in this important matter. Thank you!
