SAN FRANCISCO — “We are at a pivotal moment in our nation’s history, where we must take bold steps to ensure every family has the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their background or identity. We applaud President Biden’s commitment to expanding the Child Tax Credit.  This is a crucial move that could positively impact the lives of 16 million children from low-income families.

At Golden State Opportunity, we firmly believe that this expansion is a policy change and a moral imperative. It’s about providing families with the resources they need to afford the basics: food, shelter, and childcare. By lifting over 500,000 children out of poverty, this initiative has the potential to transform lives and communities.

We recognize that expanding the Child Tax Credit is not enough. We support the President’s commitment to making the tax code fairer and more equitable, especially for women, caregivers, and families disproportionately affected by financial burdens.

By ensuring that corporations pay their fair share, we can work together to create a more just society where every family has the opportunity to thrive. Now is the time for action. Let’s come together to make this vision a reality, to build a future where every child has the chance to reach their full potential.”
