Support Worker Relief & Credit Reform Act: mothers, other caregivers & students need it!
Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D-WI) has reintroduced the Worker Relief and Credit Reform (WRCR) Act (HR 1468) and we are encouraging that as many as possible support this important bill. The WRCR Act would redefine who is a worker to include those of us who are unpaid mothers/other unpaid family caregivers as well as low-income students in higher education – making both eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit for the first time. This is monumental – and urgently needed at this time when public benefits are under attack in Congress, including imposing further work requirements.Read More

Child Tax Credit Popular Across Parties, Reinstate Now!
URGENT ACTION ALERT: The Child Tax Credit is Popular! Voters: Independent, Republican, Democrats Call for Expansion of the Child Tax Credit
Or in this holiday season will Members of Congress gift poverty to millions of children?
The clock is ticking! Congress must reinstate the refundable Child Tax Credit before the end of 2022. The 2021 expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC) was an overwhelming success! By making it fully refundable (which made it available to the most impoverished families), raising the amount, and paying it out monthly, the expanded CTC resulted in the largest-ever decline in child poverty in a single year. Child poverty fell to 5.2%, the lowest rate on record.Read More
