Tell Congress to Stop Human Needs Cuts.
Congress averted a shutdown:  it’s passed short-term funding through December 11.  Tell them their work is not done. The nation needs a full-year plan that increases funding beyond existing restrictive caps. Congress needs to start NOW to work out a deal to increase funds for vital programs like housing, Head Start, job training, nutrition aid and education.  Your members of Congress need to hear from you that we need these investments – while protecting/expanding low-income tax credits and critical programs like Medicaid, Medicare, and SNAP.  Please send a note to your Rep and Senators today:  we do need investments so people can escape poverty and contribute to shared economic progress.  We don’t need self-inflicted crises and disruption.  Take action and email Congress now.

Stand for What’s Right: Sign SAVE letter
The right way to Strengthen America’s Values and Economy (SAVE) for All: Tell Congress to pass a budget that invests in people and communities, prevents poverty, hunger and homelessness, requires the rich and corporations to pay their fair share, and stops Pentagon waste. Three years ago, nearly 2,000 groups came together under SAVE for All – Strengthening America’s Values and Economy for All.  And we’re still working hard to show Congress that people across the country want economic security for all of us, not breaks for the well-heeled and well-connected. Our message is badly needed, because powerful members of the new Congress have voiced support for slashing funding and permanently reducing the capacity of basic low-income programs to meet need; dramatically reducing most kinds of federal spending; cutting taxes for upper-income individuals and corporations, and increasing Pentagon spending. Take action and add your organizations name now.

Please read and sign the SAVE for All letter, if you represent a local, state, or national organization. Click here for the PDF version of the letter with current signers.
