We are passing along information about an event at the Boston Common tomorrow, 5/20, where Congresswoman Katherine Clark will be speaking at 3 PM. You can learn more here.
And, here is a tweet thread from MLRI if you want to elevate. Please continue to share your concerns TODAY about cutting SNAP or TANF cash benefits in the debt ceiling negotiations and make the following ask to our delegation:
President Biden said he will not accept policies that impact people’s health needs. Being able to meet basic needs and put food on the table are essential for health. President Biden and our Congressional leaders must reject proposals to take food and income assistance away from people who can't meet a work-reporting requirement.
Please let us know if you have any questions - thank you!
