Great presentation, Michael, but what can we do, practically and strategically?

I see a letter to the editor forming, just from Michael’s preseentation.

Great idea Judy!
Michael Santos
37:54
Here's the link on the cost of doing nothing from NYT opinion piece: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/29/opinion/debt-homelessness.html?utm_source=pocket-newtab.
Tom Corbett
38:30
Good point Randy. Michael since both of Oregon's Senators are on Board as is my Rep, I feel like I am limited to LTE for Advocacy. Opinion?
Michael Santos
39:02
Practically and strategically, we need to keep the drumbeat on the importance of housing investments. It's been a long fight, but we cannot pause now. Its even more important that members hear from you. Negotiations are happening between Congressional leadership and the White House.
Randolph Splitter
39:18
CTC: why pay for more than two or three children? Is this wise policy?
Michael Santos
39:59
We are working with partners to make sure that we also communicate to the White House, but it's so important and critical for members to hear now from you about these anti-poverty policies because we can't let them move forward with a different version of BBB that will satisfy Manchin, the WH, and Congressional leadership without CTC and housing investments
Diana Tyree-Eddy
40:17
I wish there wasn’t a paywall to the NY Times article. Can anyone summarize the costs to not passing BBB. . . please????
Yolanda Gordon
40:54
Randolph as a parent of three children with lived experience, paying for all three of my children helped me provide for them as they grew and to provide for my younger two children on the Autism Spectrum.
Ken Patterson (he/him)
41:13
Most everyone who has children gets the CTC, even if they make quite a lot of money—it shows up as a tax deduction for each child when folks traditionally do their taxes. So for more well off folks it just reduces the taxes they pay.
Jenna Jones
41:33
Deshawn Childress
Jenna Jones

CTC is ??
Ken Patterson (he/him)
41:51
Child Tax Credit
Tom Corbett
42:06
We can learn how to write OpEd's? Is it common to send emails to Reps ourtside my district or multiple LTE? To develop a groundswelling?
Michael Santos
42:09
@Diana, if you open the link using Incognito mode, you might be able to look at it! Happy to email the text as well
Diana Tyree-Eddy
42:25
I’m wondering what the cost would be to West Virginia to not passing BBB. It could be a compelling argument to Manchin.
Ashley Swaby
43:34
^ Great framing
Meredith Dodson
43:38
Here is a "gift" link for that NYT piece on homelessness: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/29/opinion/debt-homelessness.html?unlocked_article_code=AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACEIPuonUktbfqohlSlUZCibSRdkhrxqAwvTCyqB5hnj7ISyYUi1Ewv8ORYic_kOHLYxSW-wO5RXJDtlQLO1oA_Vo0u5UO0EqQVfzq5bekZ1AfCls8cfuAj1pmsKQVL59_Ge0YzGweeounuPj9VqcPTexINHX0X0nIwpjp5t3Jxr9iTFTmPCzQqMi0cJ-3PwhGpl5WT4KASGAtPHiAB5_U86UOlCeskJlHrEEBkyA2IKU-LkCcw5NCFrZT3gZ4Wc06NJUO9l_L79Hz-NGicezOnW5ruu_-mBu&smid=url-share
Misty Novitch
43:40
Yes! Like the old days! Great!
Jamaica Brickhouse
44:15
As an single woman with no children who does well for myself. The CTC is needed permanently and definitely helps families. I've recently had my niece and nephew placed in my care and am realizing how expensive it is raising children. CTC is vital
Joel Rubinstein & Sylvia Sabel
44:16
The New York Times piece discussed things that are not really related to Build Back Better and probably wouldn't be solved by Build Back Better. She lost her home because her business failed followed by unaddressed mental health issues. During her homelessness period, she had medical and hospital bills that were often disconnected from reality, including the reality that poor people are supposed to get free care.
Joanna DiStefano

Thanks, everyone, for learning and practicing - and thanks, Errolyn, for leading!
Joel Rubinstein & Sylvia Sabel
56:12
Again with The New York Times piece, the cost of housing was not a factor here. The piece discussed things that are not really related to Build Back Better and probably wouldn't be solved by Build Back Better. She lost her home because her business failed followed by unaddressed mental health issues. During her homelessness period, she had medical and hospital bills that were often disconnected from reality, including the reality that poor people are supposed to get free care.
Kathleen Duncan
56:14
Thanks!
Meredith Dodson
56:22
and as a reminder, since the monthly payments were only in place for the 2nd half of the year, families will get the rest of the CTC as a refund when file taxes (and if you are eligible but didn't get the CTC monthly payments since the IRS didn't know how to get those payments to you, you can get the full year's CTC!)
Meredith Dodson
57:32
@Marty, in case helpful, can see those CTC levels here: https://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxvox/child-tax-credit-grows-lift-millions-children-out-poverty (as I mentioned, the blue lines come straight out from the left in 2021)
Michael Santos
58:08
What the NYT piece should remind all of us is that it's more cost effective to prevent housing instability in the first place than to let people experience homelessness and housing instability. There are reports on some costs - like it's more expensive to rely on the healthcare system every time someone who lost their home calls 911).
Valeria Stryker

^Most cities and many towns have Facebook pages with decent followings. Those skew a little older than the groups you mentioned, but I can say my local Chamber of Commerce hosts the reality store and other such programming--that could be a good place to start.

Delores Lyons

WHOO-HOO Jelani!!! Can't wait!
Kathleen Duncan
01:24:50
People need to drop BIPOC. I think Dems made that up.
Jenna Jones
01:25:16
agree kathleen
Jazmine Smith
01:25:44
What do you mean by that Jenna and Kathleen? Can you say more?
Yolanda Gordon
01:25:57
Actually BIPOC appeared around 2013 which started on social media and was picked up more mainstream in 2020
Susan Oehser Oakland, CA
01:26:01
Gosh, I just learned it this year from people who identify themselves that way.
Jenna Jones

BIPOC I think this term is a racist term

It's strictly descriptive
Jenna Jones
01:27:03
not all Africans and African American's want to be called people of color
Yolanda Gordon
01:27:07
actually Jenna it's not a racist term it is a descriptions just like AAPI
Jenna Jones
01:27:30
I am not Jenna its Thalia

Can you explain further Kathleen and Jenna? BIPOC is an acronym for black, indigenous and people of color its not affiliated with any political group and its not racist.
Delores Lyons
01:27:49
Yes Jenna & Kathleen, please expound on that for edification. Truthful information and clarity is very important.
Jenna Jones
01:28:10
I think its racist to call use black, indigenous and people of color.
Kathleen Duncan
01:29:10
This is Kathleen Duncan, I did not write the above remark about dropping BIPOC. ????
Kasapo Chibwe
01:29:14
Can you explain it's racist? What makes it racist? Aren't they descriptive words? What would be the alternative?
Yolanda Gordon
01:29:21
Thank you all for your thoughts around BIPOC but can we take this conversation offline. We have an AO grassroots working group that we can have a grounded discussion about acronyms and identifiers.
