EVENT ADVISORY: LIBRE-VA To Host Supermarket Event on Inflation

Grassroots Group will Give Out Gift Cards to Patrons to Offset the Cost of Inflation

(Woodbridge, VA) – The LIBRE Initiative (LIBRE) will host a grassroots event to bring awareness to harmful federal policies driving up costs of everyday goods as a part of “The True Cost of Washington” campaign.

Skyrocketing inflation has caused the average household’s annual grocery costs to go up by about $430. To demonstrate the true cost of Washington’s policies, LIBRE is giving out gift cards worth the average cost of inflation for two days ($28.67).

WHO: The LIBRE Initiative-Virginia staff and grassroots activists

WHAT: Grassroots awareness event

WHEN: Saturday, May 14, 11:00am to 1:00pm

WHERE: Todos Supermarket, 13905 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Woodbridge, VA 22191

WHY: The federal government’s spending policies and burdensome regulations have led to skyrocketing costs and the highest levels of inflation in four decades.

MEDIA RSVP: Email Ciara Kennedy-Mercer or 202-578-2934.

On average, Latinos spend more on income staples like food—they are immoderately feeling the squeeze as the prices of everyday goods continue to rise.

Getting prices under control is very clearly the number one priority for majority of Latinos, and it underscores the challenges Biden is facing now.
