Building the Foundation to End Poverty

Sitting at your kitchen table to make a budget, you prioritize the things that are most important for your family – providing daily meals, maintaining the roof over your head, ensuring your kids grow up healthy, and giving your kids every opportunity to succeed.

Each year, every member of Congress has the opportunity to weigh in on our nation’s priorities through the appropriations process. This appropriations season, urge Congress to voice their support on issues that build the foundation to end poverty – health, education, and economic opportunity.
