Debate Hunger & Poverty

Guess what won’t be a topic in next week’s presidential debates?

Here’s a hint: It affects hundreds of millions of people, both here at home and around the world. 

If you guessed hunger and poverty, you’re right.

We haven’t heard much from President Obama or Governor Romney in this election about what they will do to fight hunger and poverty – and, based on the topics announced by debate moderator Bob Schieffer earlier this week, we won’t hear about it on Monday night either. 

That’s where you and I come in. Together, we can change the conversation by calling attention to the fight to end hunger and poverty during the debates. How? It’s simple: we’re going to send the same tweet, at the same time on Monday night. 

Oxfam supporters from around the country have taken thousands of actions this fall to fight hunger: by hosting World Food Day dinners, trying out the GROW method, volunteering at their local farmers markets, and more.

You’re doing your part – and we think it’s time for the candidates to commit to doing theirs.

Oxfam America

As an international development organization, we understand the role that global hunger and poverty plays in our world today. Raising awareness of this issue during the Presidential debates is one big way to make our voices heard.
