The Mitchell Plan

Here's a little political activism to add some zest to your day:  There's a crucial program in California called CalWORKS, a "welfare to work" program, that aims to help families achieve economic self-sufficiency.  According to the US Census Bureau, California has the highest rate of poverty in the nation, and yet CalWORKS grants have been cut by 12%.  The Mitchell Plan, in support of increasing the funding to CalWORKS, is currently being negotiated, and a decision will be reached by June 15th. So, if this is an issue that speaks to you, you know what to do. Share the info (originally from the Women's Foundation of California) and contact your representatives to tell them what you think.
