Petition Closed

Contact your congressperson to ask them to "Stop Gambling on Hunger"


Watch this animated video, get angry, and call your representatives.  Food prices are spiking around the world, pushing close to 150 million more people into hunger and raising the total number of hungry to one in every six people on this planet.

Our jobs and our money are being affected by speculation. One in seven Americans cannot always buy enough food to meet their needs.

Modify the letter below, tell your personal story, and send it to President Obama and your Senators and Representative.  Working together we can reign in the fat cats and get people back to work so they can feed their families.

Thanks for joining in this much overdue campaign.
