Advocacy

Become an Advocate

Public policy advocacy takes several forms:

  • Participating in advocacy activities that challenge our way of thinking about issues affecting hunger-relief efforts
  • Staying updated on the progress of bills and initiatives on a national, state and local level
  • Contributing to the discussion as Three Square develops positions on policies that impact the hungry in our community
  • Engaging in meaningful dialogue with our Program Partners and clients in order to better understand potential impacts of new and changing policies and regulations
  • Writing letters, making phone calls, and/or signing petitions that will add credence to Three Square’s voice on policy matters
  • Visiting with elected leaders, candidates and political groups about our policy priorities

Advocates are passionate about the issues of hunger and hunger-relief! Please read the brief policy papers outlining current policy priorities.

Hunger Facts

Imagine your child’s classroom: thirty children, and fifteen of them are hungry.

58% of children in the Clark County School District are enrolled in free and reduced-price meal programs based on their family income. That’s more than half of the kids facing hunger at home and coming to school unprepared to learn.
