The Coalition on Human Needs (CHN)—a CWLA partner—is circulating a sign-on letter for national, state and local organizations to make the human services community voices heard.  The letter states that:

“Expanding opportunities for low-income people and protecting them from cuts is essential; keeping millions of people in depressed conditions stalls economic growth and increases inequality. Specifically, we call upon you to reject cuts or structural constraints in basic safety net programs such as Medicaid, SNAP/food stamps, Social Security, SSI, and Medicare.  We urge you to ensure that the lowest-income workers are not taxed deeper into poverty.”
