Ice Cream Bread and Advocacy

Last night I bought into the latest social media sensation—ice cream bread.

It is so easy, it’s ridiculous. One cup ice cream and ¾ cup self-rising flour. Well, navigating the grocery store to find the self-rising flour was not so easy. But mixing the two together, plopping it in a mini bread pan and baking? Piece of cake—or bread.

I’d like to think the same thing about advocacy—especially visiting your legislator’s office in your own backyard. Navigating the process of finding the office, scheduling the appointment and preparing for your visit may be a little challenging, but that is why we are here. Register today (just click here to learn more!) to participate in in-district visits and we will support you through the entire process. The rest, telling your story and making a huge impact? Piece of cake—or bread.

*PS: If you are going to try ice cream bread, here’s the original recipe: My suggestion is to use ice cream loaded with flavor and chunks. The more the better, or add your own!
