Top #5Actions of the Past Week: Friday, March 10, 2023
Limited time to speak up and protect asylum! Help us stop the asylum ban!
The Biden Administration is taking public comments until March 27th on its plan to resurrect a Trump-era asylum ban. We have a very limited window to submit those comments, that’s why we need you to sign our petition NOW! Together we have the power to demand that leaders do right by all children. We know what it’s like to want your children to live a life in peace and free of danger. Seeking safety for your children at our border is not a crime. We need to stand up for immigrant children and families now! We’ll submit our signatures together and hopefully prevent the resurrection of one of Trump’s worst policies. This is no time to bring back harmful policies.
SIGN NOW: Window closing for public comments to protect asylum at our border!
Quick signature: Protect our health care!
Republican leaders are setting their sights on cutting critical healthcare programs for parents and families like: Medicaid, CHIP, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Quick signature: Tell Republican leadership in Congress NOT to cut Medicaid, CHIP, and the ACA!
Tell us your family's health care story!
Personal experiences are powerful and can make a HUGE difference in helping elected leaders and our communities understand the REAL impact of health care policies on families. Right now, Congress is considering a number of health care provisions that would help families across the country and we need to hear from you! Have you or a family member:
- Gotten health insurance coverage through your state’s Marketplace, Medicaid, or CHIP program?
- Been unable to get quality, affordable health insurance?
- Had an illness or disability that requires expensive prescription drugs or frequent medical visits, treatments, or surgeries?
- Needed to access Home- and Community-based Service (HCBS)?
Tell us about your experiences and we’ll share them directly with leaders!
Strengthen and protect SNAP!
Moms, children, families, and caregivers across the country rely on the critical support of SNAP to close gaps in food insecurity and poverty. 1 in 8 Americans participate in SNAP in order to put food on the table for them and their families. Unfortunately, this vital program is under attack, threatening the food security of millions of families. Join MomsRising in speaking out to protect SNAP and the millions of families that depend on this vital program to feed their families.
Sign our petition to tell Congress to support and strengthen SNAP to help feed families!
Speak out against the GOP’s tax policies!
House Republicans proposed a 30% federal sales tax that would give the wealthy a huge tax cut, raise taxes on working families, and threaten programs like child care, healthcare, and Social Security. It would abolish the corporate income tax, the individual income tax (which is mostly paid by wealthy Americans), the estate tax (which is exclusively paid by couples worth over $25 million), and payroll taxes (which finance Social Security and parts of Medicare). This tax plan would even eliminate the Child Tax Credit—a program we know reduces child poverty and helps our families make ends meet!
SIGN our petition saying “no” to the GOP’s 30% federal sales tax proposal
