RSVP TODAY! Working Family Tax Credit Day of Celebration!

April 5, 2019
This is HUGE! And we want YOU to celebrate with us. We are bringing a mom, Julie, from Arizona to tell her story at a press conference and we want YOU and YOUR KIDS to literally back her up! You will be standing alongside Julie and the Senators at the press conference. Afterward, we'll deliver stories and letters from moms around the country to the key Senators who haven't co-sponsored the bill yet, giving them essential info on how working family tax credits are important to families leading up to Tax Day.
