March 20: Power of the Pen | Take action to end hunger and hardship with Just Harvest // Time limits on hunger assistance don't work #HandsOffSNAP**This is a monthly event brought to you by Just Harvest.**

Speaking out is a way to exercise your rights.

Speaking out effectively is a way to change the world. Coordinated letter writing to those in power is a proven way to make progress on critical issues.

So join us for Power of the Pen.

Each month we’ll discuss a key policy issue that’s causing hunger and economic hardship in Allegheny County. Then we’ll write letters to government officials and newspapers calling for change.

>> This month’s focus: The Trump administration just unveiled a new rule making it harder for underemployed and unemployed workers to access food assistance. The rule also requires further documentation creating an unnecessary burden on workers who struggle with unpredictable hours or multiple jobs. In some cases they could be denied food assistance for up to three years.

All you need to bring is a willingness to put pen to paper to share your perspective of how this is affecting you or your community.

Location info is below the registration form.

**A light meal will be provided. Child care for children age 2 and older is available to registrants.**
