NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.

The American Rescue Plan, passed by Congress and signed by President Biden in March, will deliver immediate and effective relief for parents and families hit hard by the pandemic, address racial and gender disparities in health and economic outcomes that have been exacerbated throughout the crisis, and make bold progress that puts us on a path to recovery. But what does that relief look like? What can parents and caregivers expect from the American Rescue Plan?

On this week’s episode, listen in as NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio and the Women’s Public Policy Network partner to host the first in a series of Facebook Live conversations to examine the different components of the American Rescue Plan and what is means for parents. The first event in the series discusses the newly expanded Child Tax Credit!

Speaker Panel:

  • Chad Blot, Legislative Assistant for Senator Sherrod Brown
  • Te’Jal Cartwright, a mother with MomsRising
  • Jasmine Henderson, Director of Policy and Social Impact at the Ohio Women’s Alliance
  • Elizabeth Brown, Executive Director of the Women’s Public Policy Network
