We’re ready to work together. We’re ready to get amazing things done. The financial outlook for the year looks tough. But our 170+ organizations are committed to action.
Together, our coalition can
Lift all children out of deep poverty
Create a more meaningful California Earned Income Tax Credit (CalEITC)
Renew the Expanded Child Tax Credit
Get rate increases & critical support for child care providers and families
Invest in community cradle-to-career networks
Implement HOPE Accounts so vulnerable youth have hope for the future
End racist and sexist CalWORKs policies
…and so much more!
“Forward Together. No Going Back.” is a nod to the fact that in financially tough times, across-the-board cuts to programs (austerity cuts) don’t work. In fact, they’re devastating for families. We’re notgoing back to the across-the-board cuts of the Great Recession.
We’re charting a new path. In lean times, we can make sure the most vulnerable Californians are protected. This is how we fight racism, xenophobia, and oppression in California.
We imagine a future where all our children are: Nourished. Respected. Secure. Valued. Free.
It IS possible. We will achieve this bright future together.
