Stand up with Family Forward! Save the SNAP program!

August 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Canvas the public to collect postcards in support of preserving funding for safety net programs (such as SNAP and WIC, housing subsidies, Medicaid, energy assistance, and more). People will also be invited to share more about why these issues matter to them by working with us to write up a story then and there, take a photo for social media with a #HandsOff message, or sign up to attend a popular education training to dive deeper into what’s at stake under the Trump administration’s proposed budget and learn how to be an advocate on the matter.


THE ASK OF YOU RIGHT NOW: Sign up to help from 10-11:30 or 11:30-1 (or you can stay all three hours if you like). Training provided on site, in the moment, but participants must RSVP to  no later than Monday, August 7th so we know how many people to expect for the canvas.

Anyone is welcome to stop by (bring friends, coworkers, family members, clients, etc) to sign a card, share a story and/or snap a photo with our #HandsOff sign!
