ADVOCATE

ADVOCATE YOUR VOICE

 

You can make real change in your community. Get informed, then speak up for a cause you care about, by doing something as simple as: voting, telling your friends, sharing your opinion at a town hall meeting, or writing to an elected official or the editor of a publication you read.

Making lasting change through advocacy is a journey that starts with the personal story. We all have our own reasons– big and small– for choosing to take action for our kids, families, and communities. Everyone has a stake in this effort and is part of this journey, so share your story with us!

CURRENT ISSUES

STAND UP 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. Let Congress know you care about your neighbors and community by taking a stand for EITC & CTC. Our VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) programs provides free income tax preparation to qualifying families. In 2015, we helped families get almost $12 million in tax refunds with over $5 million in EITC. These dollars go right back into the Tarrant County economy. Don’t let our working families lose the valuable resources they need.

Support Investments in Children and Families

The House Education Workforce Committee is holding reviewing Head Start. We know how important hearings are in shaping the debate, and we want your voice to be heard. Please contact your local lawmakers to know you’re behind your local Head Start and the 32 million kids and families across the country who benefit from this early learning program.
