The $85 billion in across-the-board budget cuts, known as the sequester, has had a devastating impact on Head Start, a program that helps children grow into healthy and productive adults.
Head Start was cut by $400 million in 2013, denying services to over 57,000 children. Meanwhile, corporations continue to receive a special tax break worth $370 million a year for owning private jets.
Congress has a choice. This photo petition was started by Head Start teachers, parents and supporters who all agree that instead of proposing more cuts, Congress should close corporate tax loopholes as a way to raise revenue and restore vital services.
