This Valentine’s Day, we’re telling Congress: “Don’t go breaking our hearts. Pass policies that families LOVE!” That’s right, it’s past time for Congress to show their love for our families and pass policies that are sweeter than a heart-shaped box of chocolates—policies that lift children, families, businesses, and our economy.

What’s happening? Right now, Congress is deciding the funding for policies we love like affordable childcare, nutrition programs like WIC, protection for immigrants, and an expanded Child Tax Credit. It’s time for us to remind them that families across the nation are paying attention to what they are doing.

We’ll deliver your hand-decorated “Don’t go breaking our hearts!” Valentines to lawmakers on Capitol Hill to remind them that just as love blossoms in nurturing environments, so too can our society and economy thrive when we invest in families. Let's call on Congress to show some love for families this Valentine's Day!
