According to the Institute for Economic Policy, 55 of the largest U.S. corporations, such as Amazon, paid zero dollars in federal taxes in 2020 despite bringing in massive profits. It's time for corporations to stop tax dodging & pay their fair share of taxes #JustandFairEconomy
❗ Only about 4️⃣% of adults in low-income countries have even one dose of the #COVID19 vaccine ❗
A #HolyRecovery from COVID means investing in ending the pandemic! We need #TransformativeChange in the Reconciliation package.
Our very own @RevJenButler closed out our Power Hour of prayer preaching the truth: "We follow a God who does not follow a trickle-down theory, but a trickle-UP theory of economics. There's always enough if we share."
Even amid a global pandemic, over 27M Americans are without healthcare. Congress’ once-in-a-generation reconciliation package will expand coverage, protect more people, and enact #TransformativeChange for our most vulnerable neighbors.
For 1️⃣/5️⃣ of families, full refundability of the #ChildTaxCredit has tripled average benefits. As followers of Christ, we call on Congress to pass a reconciliation bill that protects this #TransformativeChange
Expanding the Child Tax Credit during the COVID pandemic has reduced child poverty by nearly HALF. As people of faith, we’re calling on Congress to pass a reconciliation bill that enacts #TransformativeChange for American families!

We know the science, we have the technology, we need the will. So thrilled to join @FCNL’s faith community partners this morning in calling for Congress to step up, meet the moment, and address the #climate crisis.
.@amprog Senior Fellow @jocelyncfrye is speaking at the 12-hour #BuildBackBetter prayer vigil on Capitol Hill. She's discussing the need for Congress to pass #PaidLeaveforAll from her perspective as a Baptist deacon.
"We are required to act.. Faith without works is dead."
79% of Americans don’t have access to paid family leave.
This leaves many families struggling to meet the needs of their newborn children in the first 1,000 days of their life.
A #HolyRecovery should prioritize our kids and families and invest in their future!

As people of faith, we urge @POTUS & @VP to deliver a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants through the $100 billion allocated for immigration in the reconciliation package. Our communities can’t wait any longer! #Faith4Citizenship#HolyRecovery
