True compassion is more than flinging a coin at a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.

2012 Precinct Caucuses: Family Economic Security Act Resolution
Election season is upon us again and precinct caucuses will be held this coming Tuesday, February 7th, 2012 at 7:00 pm. CLICK HERE to find more information about where your caucus will be held.
TAKE ACTION: Stand up for children at your precinct caucus. iCAN is asking that our members introduce a resolution calling on the legislature to enact the Family Economic Security Act, an effort to combat rising child poverty rates through proven initiatives like fully funding child care assistance, raising the minimum wage, and increasing tax credits for low-income families with dependent children.
