Hands Off SNAP (again) Image

The House of Representatives won’t take the hint.

They Voted to Take Away SNAP and FAILED – thanks to you! Now they want to try again.

We did it once, we can do it again! Join Center for Independence of the Disabled, NY and other advocacy groups across the country for a National SNAP Call-In Day today, Wednesday, June 20th to #SaveSNAP and Defeat the House Farm Bill (Again)

Urge New York Representatives like Rep. Dan Donovan, Rep. John Faso, Rep. Elise Stefanik, and Rep. Lee Zeldin to “Vote No” on the House Farm Bill, H.R. 2, which would cut SNAP and take food off the tables of more than 2 million low-income people, including people with disabilities. The House is expected to reconsider H.R. 2 on or before June 22, after failing to pass the bill in May.

On Wednesday, June 20th 2018 – Call 1-888-398-8702 (Toll-Free Feeding America number) or Call 202-224-3121 (U.S. Capitol Switchboard) and enter your zip code to be connected to your Representative. Urge him/her to “Vote No” on H.R. 2. Check out FRAC’s talking points and CBPP’s talking points for more information about what to say when you call.

New Yorkers, Keep Up The Pressure!

If you live in any of the districts listed below, we ask you to please call in and urge your Representative to “Vote No.” Their votes critical in ensuring that working families and children are able to keep food on their tables.
