Mothers and other Caregivers Say, Our Children Are Hungry – Reinstate the Child Tax Credit Now!

By Global Women's Strike | 27th September 2022

Studies show that the majority of families used the Child Tax Credit to buy food. Reinstating the expanded refundable Child Tax Credit is needed to end hunger: Prioritize it!

As the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health convenes tomorrow – the first such conference in over 50 years – and as President Biden has pledged to end hunger and diet-related diseases by 2030, it’s urgent to call on elected officials to make reinstating the expanded Child Tax Credit a top priority.

Mothers and grandmothers speak out on what losing the Child Tax Credit has meant for their families

By Global Women's Strike | 3rd February 2022

“We’ll just be back in the poorhouse again, back where we started from. We will not get to go out on family outings. No snacks, no going out. No more Taco Tuesdays, no more movie night, no pizza night. I won’t get breaks. Less socks and shoes for the kids. The CTC was helping me catch up on my bills, but now I’m going to have to be starting all over again. Plus food prices went up, and food’s going up more. With the CTC being shut off, some people’s going to be hungry again. Five pounds of chicken wings is now $17.99. Toilet tissue’s doubled in price. It’s now 10 rolls for $10.99. Sodas were $2.98, to it’s now $6.99. That’s going to be a struggle because they ain’t upping your food stamps.”

URGENT! Tell the White House & Congress that Our Children Need You to Save the Child Tax Credit NOW!

By Global Women's Strike | 3rd February 2022

With the Senate failing to extend the Child Tax Credit (CTC) into 2022, families with children have not gotten a monthly check since December 15th and millions of children have been thrust back into poverty, millions of families have been hurt. But we cannot give up on extending the CTC, because the health and well-being of millions of children benefited from it. Vote for the CTC now! No work requirements! What job is more important than raising the next generation? Raising children is real work and moms and grandmas shouldn’t be required to get a “real job” to qualify. Children need the CTC and mothers and other primary caregivers have earned it.
