Congresswoman Sara Jacobs (D-CA-53) watched President Biden’s address to a Joint Session of Congress tonight from her district office in San Diego, following a virtual watch party she held with constituents.
Congresswoman Jacobs’ virtual guest for the speech was Shaunte Brown, a College Area resident and child care provider. Congresswoman Jacobs invited Brown to be her virtual guest to honor and celebrate the hard work of child care workers across California’s 53rd District and the entire country.
During his speech, President Biden introduced his American Families Plan to make transformational investments in our kids, families, and economies. Earlier this week, Congresswoman Jacobs led a letter to the White House calling for a permanent expansion of the Child Tax Credit and joined Senator Elizabeth Warren in announcing new legislation to create universal child care in the United States.
Statement from Congresswoman Sara Jacobs:
“This was a positive, inclusive, forward-looking speech that shows the White House is focused on meeting this moment.
