EITC/OSTC Support Rally May 7thIt is not too late for you to consider bringing a group to the Rally.  The Rally is on May 7th at noon on the front steps of the Capitol. This is a significant event that communicates a message to legislators that the EITC program is very important to us.  By not engaging in this event, we communicate a dispassionate interest on behalf of the program and a missed opportunity to honor legislators that have fought hard to advocate on behalf of this legislation.
