"We are very encouraged by the findings in the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) report about hunger in the military...and support the report's recommendation that the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) must collect more data in order to to fully understand the shameful incidence of hunger within the military.

NEW! 6 Ways to Become an Informed Voter http://owl.li/RajM303tAJ4
Participating in government through an election requires a similar understanding of electoral practices: How do I register to vote? Where is my polling location? Who are the candidates? What do they think about food insecurity, the economy, foreign policy, social issues and more? How do I find out what my candidate and elected official thinks about current pieces of legislation? Who is contributing to my candidate’s campaigns?

NEW! "As an African-American woman representing a Jewish organization working in Indian Country, I call up our common history of genocide, persecution and discrimination as a starting place for shared analysis and perspective. But I do so knowing that non-Natives cannot direct the struggle for Native food security, no matter how well-meaning we are." http://owl.li/PeLB302buiN
I am reminded that being an effective ally for Native communities means looking for effective ways to support and stand with Native communities.
