Advocacy Alert: Build Back Better

Submitted by Elisabeth on Sun, 12/19/2021 - 6:14pm


The following policy alert comes from our funded partner, the Success Equation, Children First/Communities In Schools of Buncombe County


Please take a moment to support the Build Back Better plan by signing on to this action alert from our state partners at NC Child.

This is an incredible moment – the Senate is preparing to vote on transformative legislation for early childhood education, housing, healthcare, the Child Tax Credit, and more. We need to take action now and let Senators Burr & Tillis know how much our families need Build Back Better!

The Build Back Better plan includes universal pre-K, a big boost in child care funding, closing the healthcare coverage gap for four years, extending the child tax credit, affordable housing investments, climate solutions, and more. Read more about it on the NC Child blog.

This is the strongest bill supporting families we’ve seen in generations.

The House passed this bill last month, so now we just need the Senate to act. They may vote in the next few days, so your voice is urgently needed. It’s a simple click to send our Senators an email. Children and families cannot afford to miss this chance.

Thanks speaking up and making your voice count for kids,


Greg Borom, Director of Advocacy
