The Sequestration Rules Need to Go. #StopTheCuts
Dear [Decision Maker],
We must move forward, not backwards to end child poverty now. It's immoral that our wealthy country has 14.7 million poor children. Poverty hurts children and families. Key programs such as SNAP, housing assistance, child care assistance, Head Start and many others that provide needed supports for low-income families with children are at risk of facing cuts. With cuts like those proposed more children will fall into or further into poverty.
Your Constituent and Dedicated Child Advocate,
