Hi Advocate,

Today, grassroots advocates concerned about human needs programs are participating in a statewide call-in day to support a deficit-reduction plan that does not increase poverty or income inequality.

Will you take 5 minutes to make 2 calls to Senator Portman: one to his Washington, D.C., office at 202-224-3353 and another to his Ohio district office closest to you (Columbus Office, 614-469-6774; Cincinnati Office, 513-684-3265; Cleveland Office, 216-522-7095; Toledo Office, 419-259-3895)?

Ask Senator Portman to:

  • Support a deficit-reduction plan that does not increase poverty or income inequality. It should protect programs that help children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities in need.
  • Support fair, diverse, and stable revenues sufficient to fund these programs and to invest in Ohio and America's future.

You should also talk about specific areas of concern you might have or the work you do.

If you're unable to make two calls today, please send an email to Senator Portman with the same message. Click here to send an email.

Want to do more? 

Forward this message to colleagues, friends, and family. With the lives of millions of children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities hanging in the balance, it is time to act.

You can also help us out by spreading the word using Facebook and Twitter. Please use the sample Facebook posts and Tweets below. Thanks for calling and giving more people in your community the opportunity to get involved!
