MomsRising is meeting with Senator Stabenow and her staff in Detroit and we need your help!
No special knowledge or experience is necessary and kids are welcome to join! We want to take this opportunity to meet with Senator Stabenow to discuss an important issue to our families: working family tax breaks, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Child Tax Credit, and the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit (CDCTC). If Congress doesn’t act soon key provisions of the EITC and Child Tax Credit will expire, pushing nearly 16 million people—including 8 million children and many military families—into poverty and making it harder for tens of millions more families to pay their bills, including families in Michigan. These tax credits help boost our families and our economy! Senator Stabenow has always been a leader for working families and we want to show her our support and encourage her to help push these important tax credits forward and pass them by the end of the year.
When Senators hear directly from constituents in their home state about an issue, they pay attention. And Senator Stabenow is especially important in deciding whether the EITC and Child Tax Credit are strengthened and protected.
Can you stand up for families across your state and the nation by coming with us to deliver stories and a letter from moms and dads around Michigan? In addition, we will be presenting the Senator with a MomsRising superhero cape to encourage her to be a superhero for moms and children! This will be a fun meeting and an opportunity for you to share with the Senator and her staff the importance of working family tax breaks.
Here are some more details:

You don’t need to be an expert on working family tax breaks to attend the meeting. We will provide you with talking points or you can just share your own experiences of struggling to make ends meet. (Once you RSVP we’ll send you more details before the meeting). We just want you to come, meet your Senator, meet some moms in your city, and help represent thousands of Michigan families.
