Our Priority Campaigns
When kids are hungry, they struggle to learn. When kids don't learn, they struggle in life. Still, 16 million American kids are at risk of going hungry every day. That’s 1 out of every 5 kids. We can and we must do better.
For decades, Republicans and Democrats have come together to support programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Fair Share Education Fund is working to reduce childhood hunger by increasing access to programs like SNAP that successfully provide food and income support to children and families.
Big corporations — including GE, Burger King and more — are using their lobbyists and campaign contributions to rig the tax system in their favor, and some pay nothing in taxes.
That costs the rest of us $100 billion per year in lost taxes.It's about time that rich corporations start living by the same rules as the rest of us. We're working to ensure that corporations pay their fair share of taxes.
Our democracy should give each of us a voice — and government should look out for all of us. But unlimited campaign spending allows corporations and the richest Americans to rig the system in their own favor and against the average voter.
Things are this way since the Supreme Court decided, in the Citizens United case, that corporations are people, and that they and the wealthy can spend as much as they want on elections. That’s just wrong. Corporations are not people, and they shouldn’t get to buy our democracy.
