The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) and Tyson Foods recently conducted a poll to measure attitudes and perceptions on hunger and its solutions among voters. Join us for a webinar to go over the findings, which show that Americans firmly believe hunger is a serious issue facing the nation, that its impact is widespread, and that government is key to solving it.

The data reveal striking findings on American attitudes and perceptions of hunger, showing that many people either have recently experienced hunger themselves or know someone who has.
Specifically, the call will discuss what the new polling data tell us, and how advocates and others concerned about hunger and its adverse effects can use this information to raise awareness of the problem, and knowledge of and support for nutrition programs, particularly child nutrition programs.

Presenters include:
• Sara Lilygren, Tyson Foods
• Guy Molyneux, Hart Research Associates
• Jim Weill, Food Research and Action Center
There will be time for questions at the end of webinar.

Register Now for National Audio Conferences on Job Scheduling

From our friends at CLASP Register now for three national audio conferences on job scheduling! Job schedules matter in many ways. For all workers, it helps when an employer is responsive to a request for a needed schedule change. And far too many workers have volatile and potentially destabilizing schedules. If you don't know when you are supposed to be at work until the last minute, how do you arrange child care or transportation? If your total hours fluctuate from week to week, how do you budget for rent and food? To address these issues and emerging policy opportunities, the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) is hosting and sponsoring three Job Schedules Matter audio conferences.

The conferences, which are co-sponsored by the Center for Popular Democracy and the National Women's Law Center, will include comments from U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressman George Miller on why they introduced the Schedules that Work Act. You'll also hear from workers about th…
