Advocate for Better Policies
Even if you don’t have resources like time and money to give, you have a voice. We invite you to use it for these causes.
UNITE for Working Americans
The Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit are the nation’s strongest tools to promote work and help working families keep more of what they earn to pay for things like childcare, groceries, and car repairs so they can get to work. Without Congressional action, key provisions of these important tax credits will go away, and more than 50 million Americans, including 25 million children, will feel the cut.
Reducing the Achievement Gap
The early, developmental years of a child’s life have the ability to shape their future in a profound way. Work with state nonprofits like VOICES for Alabama’s Children to advocate for better resources and access to education to ensure a better future for every child in Alabama no matter their background or socioeconomic status. With that strong start, children need our support as they learn to read, read to learn, and move forward in their education.
Follow Us on Social Media
