RESULTS advocates for tax policies that are grounded in equity and help people move out of poverty. This includes tools like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families.
Last night Congressional leaders unveiled fiscal year 2016 spending and the tax legislation. The deal makes a number of business tax credits permanent, while extending others for two or five years. Most significant for RESULTS advocates, the bill finally makes the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) provisions from 2009 permanent.
Because of the outstanding grassroots advocacy work of RESULTS volunteer advocates and others, we are close to a major tax deal that will save key pro-work tax provisions for millions of low-income families – but we need your voice to push it over the finish line. Please call or email Congress to save key Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit (CTC) provisions TODAY.
RESULTS volunteer advocates have done amazing work pushing Congress to save key Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit provisions in local media with more than 70 published pieces this fall – and this media work has made a big impact on the debate. It is likely we have less than two weeks until Congress reaches a final deal on tax legislation — let’s rally for one last media push to ensure Congress does the right thing!
A new multimedia project from MSNBC seeks to illuminate the human cost of poverty in 77 American cities, starting in California and weaving all the way across the country. “The Geography of Poverty” features graphics, facts, personal stories, and arresting black and white photography and can serve as a useful tool for RESULTS grassroots volunteers ahead of the International Conference (July 18-22) and for meetings with members of Congress at home in August.
As advocates, we may understand the value of statistics, lobby meeting “leave behinds”, and fact sheets, but we sometimes forget the need for powerful stories.
