Legislative Action Toolkit

One of the most important tools in our toolbox as advocates is speaking truth directly (or virtually) to power in a legislative meeting. Join MAZON’s fight to end hunger as we underscore the unique value of federal nutrition programs, which provide direct support to people facing food insecurity. Programs like SNAP provide assistance without judgment, showing recipients both dignity and respect, and providing live-saving benefits that keep Americans healthy, safe, and well-nourished. Please contact Kyle Fradkin, Deputy Director of Public Policy, with any questions about how to utilize this toolkit.

2. Prepare for your meeting

3. Report back and follow up

  • Fill out MAZON’s Lobby Visit Report Form and contact Andrea Orozco, Administrative Assistant, with any questions.
  • Email or send a letter to thank the Member of Congress and/or staffers, and provide any additional information that was discussed.
  • Email to thank all meeting participants for joining and discuss next steps.

4. Stay engaged

  • Sign up for MAZON E-News and Advocacy Alerts to receive updates about important public policy issues.
  • Post on social media and tag your legislators on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram — and tag @MAZONusa.
