We just got this from our national partners at the Coalition of Human Needs. Please consider signing onto the letter by Wednesday, the 28th!

See also Taunton Gazette news story with Citizens to Citizens legislative breakfast on March 23rd urging local officials to urge Congress to protect WIC funding. http://m.tauntongazette.com/wkdTGazette/db_/contentdetail.htm?contentgui... According to the news story, "WIC estimates it serves 9 million U.S. women, infants and children (up to the age of 5). Its caseload in Massachusetts is estimated to be 136,000. WIC says that  amounts to 45 percent of all Bay State infants and 53 percent of infants born in the U.S."  BIG congrats to Citizens to Citizens for hosting this wonderful breakfast meeting with local officials and raising this important issue.
