We need YOU to help us change systems to better serve Hoosier families. Below are six ways you can engage.
1. Sign up for Action Alerts
During the state legislative session and at key points in the development of federal legislation, we send action alerts with quick, easy asks. Sign up here to receive these alerts.
Through stories, we can identify new areas where change is needed and support existing policy priorities. Sharing a personal story can interrupt damaging rehtoric and break down existing stereotypes or false beliefs about how the world works. When permission is granted, we share stories submitted to us on social media, in meetings with lawmakers, and at public events.
- Share your story about having or not having paid leave
- Share your story about debt, payday loans, or debt collections
- Share your experience requesting accommodations at work while pregnant or nursing
- Share a story about a safety net program (TANF, SNAP, Section 8, CCDF, etc.)
- Share another story
3. Sign on in Support of Our Policy Priorities
Sign-on letters demonstrate broad-based support for policy change. We are currently collecting signatures on:
- A sign on letter in support of legislation to cap payday loans at 36% APR
- A sign on letter in support of legislation to provide reasonable workplace accommodations for pregnant women
- A sign on letter in support of legislation to raise eligibility and benefits levels for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
