I’m coming to Las Vegas to meet with Senator Heller and/or his key staff and I need your help!

Can you join me and a few other moms from the Las Vegas area for a meeting with Senator Heller and/or his key staff on June 29th? Please let me know if you are interested in joining us!

No special knowledge or experience is necessary and kids are welcome to join! And if you are available, I’ll take you out for lunch afterwards so we have more time to get to know each other.

While our Senators are back in their home state over the 4th of July recess we want to take this opportunity to talk to them about an important issue to our families: working family tax breaks, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit. If Congress doesn’t act soon key provisions of the EITC and Child Tax Credit will expire, pushing nearly 16 million people—including 8 million children and many military families—into poverty and making it harder for tens of millions more families to pay their bills, including families in Nevada. These tax credits help boost our families and our economy! It’s important that Senator Heller hear from moms like you, so he can understand how important these tax credits are for families in Nevada.

When Senators hear directly from constituents in their home state about an issue, they pay attention. And Senator Heller is especially important in deciding whether the EITC and Child Tax Credit are strengthened and protected.

Can you stand up for families across your state and the nation by coming with us to deliver stories and a letter from moms and dads around Nevada. In addition, we will be presenting the Senator with a MomsRising superhero cape to encourage him to be a superhero for moms and children! This will be a fun meeting and an opportunity for you to share with the Senator and his staff the importance of working family tax breaks.

We have limited space so if you are interested please contact me ASAP and I’ll email you with more details.

Just email me by filling out the form here.

Here are some more details:

Who: Las Vegas-area MomsRising members (and their kids), as well as, MomsRising National Budget Campaign Director Elyssa Schmier

What: Meeting with Senator Heller’s staff (and the Senator himself if he is available) to discuss working family tax breaks, including the EITC and Child Tax Credit

When: Monday, June 29th at 11am

Note: Kids are welcome! Please RSVP ASAP since we have limited space for this meeting and we want you to come (and have lunch with us afterward)!

You don’t need to be expert on working family tax breaks to attend the meeting. We will provide you with talking points  or you can just share your own experiences of struggling to make ends meet. (Once you RSVP we’ll send you more details before the meeting). We just want you to come, meet your elected leaders, meet some moms in your city, and help represent thousands on Nevada families. If you have a personal story about how the EITC and Child Tax Credit helped your family, we would love for you to share it as well!

Don’t forget to email me if you are interested in joining this fun and exciting event in Las Vegas by filling out the form here.

P.S. Do you have a personal experience with the EITC and/or the Child Tax Credit? Awesome! MomsRising would love to hear about it so we can then share your story with Senator Heller and other elected officials. Please share your story here:
