Friends Committee on National Legislation offers an analysis by Director Diane Randall: Too much on war. Not enough on peace.

Oxfam America explains that we need to call our Representatives to advocate for programs that save lives globally, especially when four famines are looming and millions face starvation.

Think your Congressperson already agrees with you? It is still SO IMPORTANT to call to encourage her/him or to say thank you!
