About 50 million adults have applied for unemployment benefits in less than six months, compared to about 37 million in 18 months during the Great Recession. What’s worse, almost 12 million people who applied for benefits have not received any. talkpoverty.org/2020/09/15/12-…

Today we are mourning #BreonnaTaylor's murder all over again. And so we vow to fight harder and smarter, to join together, and to refuse—no matter the circumstances—to settle for less than absolute equity and justice for all. #upEND #upENDmovement

It's #HispanicHeritageMonth. Did you know that: - 32% of moms on #TANF are Latina? - 41% of Latino kids live in states with the lowest benefits? - 38% of Latino kids live in states where #TANF covers under 1/3 of modest rent? Improving #TANF can help Latino families thrive.

#StrengtheningFamilies is not about doing a 180 on your parenting approach. It’s about taking small steps that contribute to a child's development. Here's a few questions that can help you better understand your parenting approach, seek resources & grow with your child in love.

"The concept of poverty is often interpreted as a state of being “poor” or “not poor.”" I've been thinking a lot about this lately and how frustrating it is, and so happy to see @uscensusbureau address it directly in a blog post! I ❤️@uscensusbureau census.gov/newsroom/blogs…

Per @MigrationPolicy, 1.7 million spouses who are either U.S. citizens or green card holders (including kids!) did not receive stimulus checks under the last recovery deal because their loved one is an immigrant. End the #FamilyPenalty! #ChildrenThrive bit.ly/UUScovid

Many immigrant families are excluded from #COVIDRelief legislation but also are FEARFUL of accessing services under an administration that has systematically threatened immigrant families. Emergency support must be robust AND inclusive. buzzfeednews.com/article/hameda…
Immigrants are more likely to work in service sector jobs, prone to mass layoffs, and in front-line positions putting them at increased risk of contracting COVID-19. But #CARESAct & #FFCRA excluded many immigrant families from receiving support. It's time for change. #COVIDRelief
It is immoral to kick families & individuals out of their homes during the pandemic. We need resources & protections for people experiencing homelessness who are endangered by #COVID19. #GetBackToWork #COVIDRelief tinyurl.com/y9mmz9hv @NLIHC @OppStartsatHome

Every family needs health insurance and a social safety net to prepare for economic and health crises like this one. We need to provide a robust #COVIDRelief package, build a stronger future for us all, and not leave immigrant families behind in legislation for supports.

We're ready for the #COVIDRelief tweetstorm. We need to provide the necessary supports for the many families struggling with rent, food, and basic household needs, and we must ensure this system of supports also includes mixed-status immigrant families. cssp.org/resource/stron…
COVID-19 continues to devastate families of low-income backgrounds and Black, Latino, Native American, and immigrant households. Many households do not have enough to eat and are behind on rent payments. We need direct economic aid and #COVIDRelief NOW.
9 to 17 million children live in a household where children did not eat enough because they couldn't afford it. We need #COVIDRelief, especially for mixed status families who were barred from receiving stimulus checks the first time around. cbpp.org/research/pover…
Among Latino children, 95% are US citizens, yet the decision to exclude the relatively few Latino adults w/o legal status in the country from COVID-19 economic relief has had far-reaching impacts on families and their American children. #ChildrenThrive
