Our country is navigating the most challenging economic times in a generation. The current shut-down is harmful and potentially catastrophic for our fragile economy.
Programs like Head Start and WIC help struggling families put food on the table and care for their children. The government shutdown is harming our children and limiting their future opportunities by reducing investments in their health and education. The longer the shut-down continues, the more people and communities’ economic security will be damaged.
It is in the interest of our Nation that Congress find a way to fund the government immediately. We need your voice to urge the President, Congressional Leadership, and each and every Member of Congress to reach across the aisle and work to find common ground on funding the federal government.
