We are excited to announce that US Congresswoman Gwen Moore (D-WI) reintroduced the Worker Relief and Credit Reform (WRCR) Act on March 9th in DC.

The WRCR Act of 2023 (HR 1468) modernizes the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), reaching more workers and expanding the definition of work to make unpaid family caregivers and low-income students eligible for EITC for the first time. By recognizing the work of mothers and other unpaid caregivers as well as low-income students and getting money directly into their hands, the WRCR Act is expected to reduce poverty by one-third, especially among women of color, single mothers, survivors of domestic abuse, those with disabilities, older women and more.

👉 Using this sample letter, please ask your Congressional Representatives to sign-on to the WRCR Act as a co-sponsor. Feel free to add details about how you, your family, and community would benefit by having your unpaid work recognized and valued.

👉 Please also let us know if your organization would like to endorse the WRCR.

👉 Help spread the word! Please show your support for Congresswoman Moore’s efforts to attack poverty, including by sending this request out to your networks. And messages about what the WRCR Act would mean to you as a caregiver or student would help to strengthen our case that this is urgently needed. Please send messages from you and others in your network to us and we can pass them along and use on social media.
