While many spent Monday drinking green beer and celebrating their Irish (or lack of) heritage, several advocates and experts got together on Twitter for an hour-long chat about how a state Earned Income Tax Credit would benefit Kentucky.

This was Kentucky Youth Advocates’ first time hosting a Tweet Chat. We had great participation from a few folks and many others participated by retweeting to their followers. All talked about the impressive benefits an Earned Income Tax Credit would have on Kentucky – from helping children succeed in school to help adults pay for car repairs to get to work, it’s clear this is a policy that works.
