...struggle with diaper need. Diapers are just as essential for health and well-being as food, but most government programs do nothing to alleviate this need. It’s unacceptable – and as the numbers keep growing, we need to take action. U.S. Senators Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) just re-introduced the End Diaper Need Act of 2023 and it's time to make some noise in support of this vital legislation.
SNAP and WIC assistance cannot be used for diapers
Diaper need is a leading cause of maternal depression
Most daycares will not accept babies if diapers are not provided
As a Result,
Parents in need who rely on daycare miss an average of 5 days of work each month, perpetuating the cycle of poverty.
We demand that elected officials take action and pass the End Diaper Need Act of 2023. Add your voice to the growing list of people who will no longer tolerate the fact that we are failing babies and families.
