No family should live in poverty. All families deserve a fair chance to not only make ends meet but to build a better future.

We believe in family-friendly policies and programs that help poor and low-income households sustain themselves with dignity:

  • Child care subsidies
  • Family and medical leave
  • Rent assistance
  • Fair lending
  • Social Security
  • Unemployment insurance
  • Temporary cash assistance (TANF)
  • Temporary food assistance (SNAP)
  • Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)
  • Child Tax Credit (CTC)

We fight against policies and practices that exploit low-income families and keep them poor:

  • Payday loans, title loans, and other forms of predatory lending
  • Fees and fines that unjustly punish and endebt the poor
  • “Public charge” rules that exclude and harm poor migrant families
  • Predatory for-profit colleges and programs selling useless degrees
  • Grocery taxes and other regressive taxes that hurt poor families

Family-friendly policies, including a strong social safety net, make all families stronger.
