As representatives in Congress continue to pick apart the cost of the “Build Back Better” legislation, which would provide historic funding for social services and change countless lives, join in a conversation reflecting on the real impact of provisions within the bill. Hear how the Child Tax Credit has helped families pay outstanding medical expenses, fix the family vehicle, or even just put food on the table. Learn how even two weeks of paid leave can mean the difference between seeking treatment for illness or losing a job. Take action to ensure that these provisions and more are protected as the bill comes up for a vote.
AFSC staff Liz Brunello, Lida Shepherd, JoAnna Vance, and Rick Wilson discuss these provisions for roughly 15 minutes, sharing stories that serve as case studies illustrating urgency and real-world impact.
