Add your name to support working families




A slideshow summary of policies and benefits in the American Families Plan.


Bottom Line Up Front

The American Families Plan will make it easier for working people to care for our loved ones. It invests and builds better infrastructure for child care, education and paid leave. Add your name to support working families.


Few households in America aren’t struggling with a caregiver crisis during the pandemic. The burden is falling disproportionately on the shoulders of women—and without paid family leave, it has been devastating.


Last week, the Biden administration released the American Families Plan to invest in working people and our families. It provides direct relief through child care subsidies, free education and by extending tax credits from the American Rescue Plan.


By also setting policies and building a system that’s better than what we had before, it:


  • Makes a plan to guarantee 12 weeks of paid leave.


  • Adds two years of universal preschool and two years of free community college for all.


  • Supports child care workers.


  • Caps child care costs at 7% for families making 1.5 times their state’s median income.


And it does all that without raising taxes on those making less than $400,000. It’s funded by closing tax loopholes and making sure the wealthiest Americans are paying their fair share.


The American Families Plan provides relief to working families and invests in our future. If you support working people and our families, add your name to show your support.
