Betsy Skipp Miami , any chance to address the public charge
Tomorrow morning the lawsuits to stop implementation of the changes to public charge (limiting immigrant families' access to anti-poverty programs) and RESULTS signed on to an amicus brief with other nutrition and housing groups. To see our original comment and get more context: https://results.org/blog/results-responds-to-white-house-proposals-that-threaten-low-income-families/
so really in a litigation stage, but here are some key talking points for those interested:
• The Trump public charge regulation is brutal, dangerous and unlawful• It’s about sending one message: if you’re not white and you’re not wealthy, you’re not welcome• We support efforts to block it, through the courts and in Congress• An injunction would protect millions from real, lasting harm• We don’t know when we will receive a decision, so we also urge Congress to act• We’re running out of time to protect immigrant families

And state numbers on how many would be impacted by expanding EITC and CTC: https://www.cbpp.org/research/federal-tax/working-families-tax-relief-act-would-raise-incomes-of-46-million-households
Need lobbying resources? Start on this page: https://results.org/volunteers/lobbying/
Is it as effective to communicate with the aids via email compared to via phone?
I think email (directly to the appropriate aide) better/more likely to get to them generally -- they are so often booked in meetings
if you need help confirming the right email address, let me know
Can look up aides and how to email here too http://capwiz.com/fconl/dbq/officials/
So our homework: make expanding the EITC/CTC THE top priority for any tax deal this year They are starting these negotiations now And will be decided behind the scenes, so we need leadership to hear from their peers
