Resistbot Petition: Cut child poverty by renewing the Extended Child Tax Credit now!
An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Cut child poverty by renewing the Extended Child Tax Credit now!

343 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

I’m writing as a constituent to urge you to support renewing the expanded Child Tax Credit before the end of the year. This policy was a lifeline to tens of millions of families last year and cut child poverty by over 40%. 91% of low-income families used their monthly expanded Child Tax Credit checks to cover the cost of basic necessities like housing, food, utilities, and clothing to ensure their children have healthier, more stable environments.  The Child Tax Credit expansion cut Black child poverty by 54%!  If Congress does not act, 19 million children in the lowest-income families will not receive some or all of the current CTC. It’s estimated that the Child Tax Credit expansion boosted consumer spending by $27 billion, generated $1.9 billion in revenues from state and local sales taxes, and supported the equivalent of over 500,000 full time jobs.  Please pass the expanded, monthly Child Tax Credit for children and their families this year. Thank you.
