What should #Election2016 candidates know about poverty, hunger, healthcare & the wage gap?
UPDATE!! This chat has been RESCHEDULED for Monday, October 24, 2016, at 4 PM ET with new hashtag #FoodMon! Please use #FoodMon during our chat on Monday!
Join MomsRising, Coalition on Human Needs, FRAC, and National Women’s Law Center for a #FoodFri tweetchat on Friday (October 21st) at 1pm ET. We’ll be chatting about how we can use the USDA hunger data and U.S. Census data on poverty, healthcare, and the wage gap to ask the 2016 candidates questions about income inequality and anti-poverty policies that help boost our families!
Let's make sure the candidates know our concerns. Let's hold them accountable by asking questions, sharing our concerns and evaluating all the candidates during the Election.
