Yesterday we officially announced our first big steps in our #KeepOurTrust Pledge campaign to save Social Security!
Over the past several weeks, we’ve sent letters to the offices of every United States House Representative and Senator. Our letter asks on behalf of all of our supporters and every American retiree (and future retiree!): please pledge your commitment to fighting for the solvency of the Trust Fund and for the secure benefits of all working Americans.
The #KeepOurTrust campaign is asking you and your colleagues in the 116th Congress to commit to fixing the imminent crisis our nation’s Social Security Trust Fund faces. Social Security’s own Trustees forecast a permanent 25% decrease in Social Security benefits by 2034. Moreover, Congress continues to permit taxes collected under the Social Security Trust Fund to be used for purposes other than Social Security Benefits.
In each letter, we’ve invited members of Congress to sign an immediately accessible electronic Pledge as well as enclosed a physical Pledge they can sign and send right back. This is our first direct introduction and invitation to all members of Congress to join their constituents in fighting for something nearly all Americans support and depend upon.
Over the next several days, we will be reaching out to all of our supporters with new ways for you to engage your members of Congress.. Now that Congress knows what this campaign is all about, we’re depending on YOU—their constituents—to reach out and encourage them to sign the #KeepOurTrust Pledge!
