President Biden delivers a speech on voting rights legislation

Until our freedom to vote is secured, we won’t see progress on the issues that matter most to us — abortion access, gun violence prevention, economic equality, racial justice, climate change.

January 6th Day Of Remembrance And Action

JANUARY 6TH DAY OF REMEMBRANCE AND ACTION: Today marks one year since the violent and deadly attacks at the U.S. Capitol. A broad coalition of more than 130 organizations are holding a D.C. vigil near the U.S. Capitol with more than 350 events planned across the country. To prevent this kind of attack from happening again, advocates are demanding elected leaders pass urgent legislation that will protect the right to vote including the Freedom to Vote Act, the Protecting Our Democracy Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and DC Statehood.

Reps. Veronica Escobar (D-TX), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), Andy Kim (D-NJ), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), and Sen. Chris Van Hollen will also provide remarks and offer first-hand accounts of the January 6th attacks.

11/05/2021

CHN's #TrackingHardship Covid-19 Watch covers the impact that #BuildBackBetter would have for reducing hardship:

- 39 million families would receive the expanded #ChildTaxCredit payments of $3,000-$3,600 per child to cover basic expenses.

- 2-4 million uninsured adults below the poverty line would gain more affordable health coverage, 60% of these adults are POC and live in states refusing to expand Medicaid programs.

- ⬆️ Increased funding for Home and Community-Based Services of $150 Billion will serve more of the aging and people with disabilities. 817,000 people are now on waiting lists for #HCBS.

Please tell Congress: get it done.
☎️Call your representative today at 1-888-516-5820 and demand that they pass #BuildBackBetter!
