According to the administration's own estimate, its proposed rule would jeopardize food assistance for 755,000 Americans in fiscal year 2020. It would also dramatically weaken SNAP by making it even harder for unemployed and underemployed workers to access food assistance. #handsoffsnap

The Trump-Pence administration just finalized its rule that would allow religious or moral beliefs to dictate patient care. This rule allows hospitals, doctors, nurses, and other individuals and institutions to deny a patient standard medical care based on their personal beliefs, not based on what is best for the patient.

November is Homeless Awareness Month. No one should have to worry about whether they will have food on their plate or a roof over their head, but the reality is that hunger and homelessness are widespread problems that affect far too many people.
Children are disproportionately effected by this issue, so in the month of November CCJ will be focusing on childhood homelessness awareness.
