Action Alerts

Tell your Senators: Vote NO on giant tax-giveaways, cuts to health care. The Senate will take up a bill as early as the week of Monday, Nov. 27 that would provide trillions of dollars in tax breaks to millionaires and wealthy corporations, and would eliminate the individual mandate, a cornerstone of the Affordable Care Act. We must defeat this massive give-away to the rich, which will be paid for by cuts to programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, education, SNAP, housing, job training low-income tax credits, and so many others that help struggling families make ends meet. Click here to email your Senators.

Take action locally.  Our friends at Indivisible have created this handy guide that lists anti-tax cut rallies happening across the U.S.

Call your member of Congress.  CHN joins Americans for Tax Fairness and a broad range of organizations in the “Not One Penny” campaign to ask everyone to call this number – 877-795-7862 – and tell their members of Congress to vote against this plan. When you call the number, you will be asked for your zip code, and then you will directly be connected to your congressional representative’s office.

Alternately, you can visit this web site, select the member of Congress you wish to contact, and enter your phone number and zip code.  You then will be connected with the office of the Representative or Senator you selected.

Over 1,500 groups signed a letter demanding that    Congress pass a budget that invests in all.

View the letter and see the signers. It’s not too late for your organization to sign the letter

Members of Congress are considering carrying out Trumpean budget cuts – slashing programs our communities rely on, including food aid through SNAP, rental assistance, safeguards for clean air and water, and even deeper cuts in Medicaid than those in the health care repeal.

The more than 1,500 groups, from every state, include faith groups, service providers, and experts and advocates concerned with children, seniors, women, workers, communities of color, people with disabilities, immigrants, the environment, education, housing, nutrition, and health.  They represent millions of people.

 Make Sure That Your Member of Congress Sees The Letter and Knows You Want to Stop the Cuts
