#TalkPoverty & Solutions, Not Harmful Cuts
With time running out, Congress faces a choice: slamming struggling families through deep, immediate cuts to critical programs; or a balanced approach that raises revenue by closing tax loopholes for the wealthy. These arbitrary and damaging cuts to food assistance, child care, head start and many other programs—known as the “sequester”—may kick-in March 1st unless Congress takes action and chooses the balanced approach. Raise your voice today and let Congress know why you #TalkPoverty and expect them to protect the programs that support struggling families.

Congress: make the right choice. Instead of protecting tax loopholes for the wealthy and Big Oil, protect the programs that support struggling families from arbitrary and damaging cuts set to take place March 1st. There is a balanced way forward that doesn’t slam struggling families.
