Petition Background

In an effort to protect the dignity of the most vulnerable in Virginia and promote the common good, you are being asked to support the legislative priorities of Social Action Linking Together (SALT). SALT'S goals are to end school lunch shaming of poor children, ensure that correctional facilities that have video visitation services do not abolish or decrease the available in-person visits, limit and end solitary confinement (which is considered to be torture by many religious leaders and healthcare professionals), provide educational opportunities that will help break the cycle of poverty, enable children in needy families to be cared for in their own home or the homes of relatives, end the lifetime ban on Food Stamps (SNAP) and TANF welfare benefits for ex-offenders convicted of felony drug crimes, oppose funding protocols (e.g., Block Grants) that eventually reduce funding for human services and Medicaid, and strengthen kinship guardian care for impoverished children.
