Fight Attack on Low-Income Families’ Food Support

Take Action! The public comment period is open through Sept. 23.

The Trump Administration is trying to bypass Congressional action on food assistance passed with proposed changing the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly “food stamps”). 3.4 million Texans — kids, the elderly, people with disabilities, veterans and workers who don’t earn enough to feed their families — turn to SNAP to help buy food every month. It is the nation’s most effective anti-hunger program. Children from families who would lose their SNAP benefits under the proposed rule would also lose access to free lunches and breakfasts at school.

Vote No on Proposition 4

Take Action! Oct. 7 is the last day to register for the Nov. 5 election 

Our state constitution already requires voter approval before adoption of a personal income tax, but now an ideologically driven constitutional amendment (Proposition 4) seeks to make it even harder for future generations of Texans to create a more equitable way to pay for critical services. Instead of tying the hands of future Texans by imposing even higher barriers to voter approval of a personal income tax, we should allow future Texans to make their own choice about how to best pay for schools and health care.
