Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:11:30

Alicia Stromberg (she/they)
01:11:39

We met a new advocate interested in Global health issues at a community event two years ago, and she's been a wonderful advocate and point person for Marco Rubio's office. she's now completing and internship with Gavi - which she learned about through working with RESULTS
Alicia Stromberg (she/they)
01:12:59
"always be organizing" I like that chris!
Kathleen Duncan
01:13:50
Golly how wonderful Karyne!
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:14:23

Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:17:14
Question about drawing attention - do you discourage wearing branded shirts - like if we're all branded RESULTS it's likely they won't answer everyones question if we're from the same org
Lynne Patalano
01:19:04
My small group would spread out and NOT look like we were there together... so we seem to be part of the crowd… and talk and shake hands with people who do sit near each of us
Amanda Beals (she/her)
01:20:03
Interesting point karyne. I could see that. I could also see wearing branding as a good outreach thing — ooh, RESULTS? What’s that? The power to end poverty? I want to know more…
Ken Patterson, RESULTS (he/him)
01:20:20
I wouldn't wear branded shirts
Ken Patterson, RESULTS (he/him)
01:20:59
If they've asked one person with a shirt on, they are unlikely to ask a second person with the shirt on
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:21:06
It's helpful to have someone from your team record to take the pressure off
Amanda Beals (she/her)
01:22:29
can one person have something branded but everyone else not? i don't have a strong feeling - it's just more of an outreach plus..but if it waters down influence that's not great
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:23:45
that's a good strategy Chris
Lynne Patalano
01:32:37
Sorry all, I need to exit now for a Regional call. This was great! Thanks
Michael Santos, RESULTS (he/him/his)

Engage: In 2021, the expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC) helped millions of American families weather tough economic times, while also cutting child poverty by more than one-third.
Chris Noble (he/him)
01:40:01
Problem: These gains have now been erased since the CTC payments stopped last December, despite the CTC proving itself to be an effective and efficient way to strengthen families and reduce child poverty.
Chris Noble (he/him)
01:40:08
Inform: The 2021 CTC expansion is the most pro-family policy in a generation. [Share your own experience and/or state data on the impact of expanding the CTC]. It helped families stay housed, put healthy food on the table, and stay employed. Two reasons for this success were that families with low- or no incomes got the full CTC, and that payments were made monthly. The monthly payments put money back into the hands of families. And they know best how to use it, whether it was for monthly bills, their child’s education, or for one parent to stay home to care for their children.
Chris Noble (he/him)
01:40:13
Call to Action: Congress must prioritize effective policies that strengthen families and fight child poverty. Will you work to expand the CTC — prioritizing families with the lowest incomes — in any tax legislation this year?
Chris Noble (he/him)
01:55:12
great job, william!
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:55:26
Great job Dr. Cosgrove!
Chris Noble (he/him)
01:56:13
Support your community, Sen Aimlow! Young people and families need these credits!
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:57:10
Senator Aimlow, if I may, the data shows that families were using the monthly allowances to cover rent payments and avoid eviction!
Amanda Beals (she/her)
01:57:27
how can we say no to 3 pediatricians - literally ppl who know most about what kiddos need to be healthy and thrive
Karyne Bury (she/her), RESULTS
01:57:49
We need the tax credit now, will you support your constituents in making sure that this is made a priority if reelected to the Senate?
Amanda Beals (she/her)
01:57:55
we need to make this CTC expansion happen - per the doctors' order
Chris Noble (he/him)
01:58:00
i know you're a congressman for the familes, CTCs helps families!
William Cosgrove
02:00:03
The child tax credit is simply investing in the success of all of our children.
