Standing on Our Principles: How the Child Tax Credit can Promote the Economic Security and Well-Being of Children and Families

June 2024

Every child deserves the opportunity to grow and thrive. During this briefing from June 2024, Rep. Rosa DeLauro (CT-3) and Rep. Jimmy Gomez (CA-34) spoke about the importance of expanding the Child Tax Credit (CTC) to reduce child poverty, and a panel of parents from across the country discussed how the CTC can promote family well-being and bring equity to the tax code as we look toward 2025 and the expiration of key provisions of the Trump Administration’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

This webinar was hosted by the Automatic Benefit for Children (ABC) Coalition, Center for the Study of Social Policy, Children’s Defense Fund, and First Focus on Children.
