xx2As part of the Caps Hurt Communities Campaign, we are asking all advocates on Twitter to use the power of social media to tell Congress to protect homes, families, and communities by lifting the federal sequester caps.

From July 27 – July 31,  please use #CapsHurt in your Tweets that call attention to ending federal sequester caps.  Please consider using the following sample tweets:

  • LIFT the unfair budget caps and END the sequester cuts for a stronger and more prosperous America.  #CapsHurt http://bit.ly/1DhlV7e
  • Families thrive because of housing&community development investments. #Congress should increase #AffordableHousing resources. #CapsHurt
  • America is stronger and prosperous when we have decent, affordable homes & stable communities. #CapsHurt http://bit.ly/1DhlV7e
  • Congress must lift spending caps& increase resources to protect #affordablehousing for low income families and communities. #CapsHurt

Caps Hurt Communities is an advocacy campaign to build a movement of individuals and organizations committed to bringing an end to federal sequester caps. It is being coordinated at the national level by the Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding (CHCDF), a coalition of national organizations dedicated to adequate federal housing and community development funding for lower income families and communities.
