This week, the Republican-controlled House is going to try to make massive cuts to SNAP (food stamps), a program that helps more than 2 million people who are struggling to make ends meet.
The Farm Bill, an omnibus spending measure that has historically passed with bipartisan support, is just the latest in a series of Republican attempts to punish the poor, women, children, and people with disabilities.
This bill is also stuffed with provisions that undermine crucial environmental protections, prioritizing the logging industry over our forests.
Congresswoman Pelosi is trying to rally Democrats to oppose this bill. She needs all of our support. This Mother’s Day, protect moms and Mother Earth.
ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
