TAKE ACTION TODAY to urge the Senate to make decisions on the tax overhaul that don’t harm human services organizations like yours, and that contribute to positive outcomes for children, families, adults, and communities.

Congressional efforts to overhaul the tax code are fast-moving, and it is important that your voice is heard multiple times throughout the process. Today, we ask you to reinforce a letter the Alliance sent to all Senate offices today that urges balanced decision-making that helps people, protects the health and human services sector, and enacts a universal Charitable Giving Deduction. 

Take Action Today: Email Your Senator

 

Tweet your Senator today and through next week:

.@YourSenator: The cost of tax cuts is too high when it means cutting the foundational supports that build strong families and communities.

.@YourSenator : America's health and human services professionals support stronger families and communities. Reject tax changes that erode that foundation and prove harmful to working families over the long term.

.@YourSenator: Changes to the tax code should support stronger families and communities who are the backbone of the American economy.
