Join us on Twitter April 9th for a #StopTheCuts Tweetchat and Tweetstorm


April 8, 2015

Join the Coalition on Human Needs, Children’s Defense Fund, and other national organizations for an important tweetchat and tweetstorm on how the proposed budget cuts hurt children and families.

On Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 1pm ET national organizations will answer critical questions surrounding the budget and share ways to take action with #StopTheCuts. At 1:30 pm ET, we will move into a tweetstorm and flood lawmakers’ Twitter handles with reasons to #StopTheCuts.

There are deep, devastating cuts to critical programs that help children and families proposed in both the Senate and House budget resolutions that were recently passed. We need your help telling Congress real people will be harmed if they proceed with these choices.

Take action today by writing lawmakers and signing our petition. Then join us on Twitter April 9th at 1pm ET.
