Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Representing the 3rd District of Ohio

Working Families and Children

 

Beatty on Working Families and Children

We have a responsibility to support the most vulnerable among us, which is why I’ve spent my time in Congress fighting for families. This includes supporting bills to institute paid family leave, expand the child tax credit, and provide child care for working families, because these kinds of programs are investments in the future stability of our country.

One child living in poverty is one too many. That is why I strongly support food security programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). These programs ensure the overall health and well-being of countless Americans, including more than 50,000 households in Ohio’s Third Congressional District.

I am also leading the charge in Congress on the issue of human trafficking. Children, women, and men are being preyed upon and—while progress has been made to expose, raise awareness, and provide support to victims—we must continue to do more.
