From Election Action for Caregivers:
Take action to ask Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris to strengthen their support for caregivers.
There are over 53 million unpaid family caregivers in the US, plus 11 million stay at home parents. It’s URGENT that the Biden/Harris Campaign recognize this essential work with fully-refundable tax credits. Ask that they express their support in the Presidential and VP Debates.
- Please tweet Biden/Harris from your personal and organizational Twitter accounts.
Vice President @JoeBiden & Senator @KamalaHarris: Please expand your support for paid/unpaid caregivers. Recognize these essential workers with fully refundable tax credits. This support would be a boost and incentive for many voters. https://medium.com/@electionaction4caregivers/letter-to-vice-president-biden-and-senator-harris-1b4e85b16a99
Additional tweets: add something about your situation as this caregiver did –
