Don’t let the “assault on food-stamp recipients,” along with the erosion of Medicaid coverage, and increases in public housing programs go by unchallenged (“The steep price of the Trumpian circus“ by E.J. Dionne Jr., The Salt Lake Tribune, April 29). Time to call, write and visit those who represent you in Congress to tell them to end the war on the poor. Instead, ask them to fully fund these ladders out of poverty and then end the causes of hunger and poverty in the world’s richest country.

Our communications with those who represent us can make all the difference!
