Today’s Action: The pandemic relief package we ACTUALLY need

We did the first year of this pandemic the GOP’s way. With Democratic control of Congress and the White House, it’s time to do it our way…though we’ll still need to push to ensure we get what we want and need.

With the vaccine roll-out far behind schedule, millions of Americans facing insurmountable back-rent, and spiraling healthcare costs for many who have been hospitalized, we need so much more than the support provided by past bills.

We want:

  • Monthly direct payments to struggling families
  • $600/week unemployment benefits through the end of the pandemic
  • Robust state, local, and tribal funding to maintain public services in the face of immense revenue loss
  • Better funded vaccine distribution for faster and more organized inoculation
  • Rent and student loan forgiveness…not just pushing crushing debt down the road
  • Small business support, especially in BIPOC communities, and protections against big businesses capitalizing on struggling small businesses
  • A $15 minimum wage
  • And more…share your personal needs!

Call or email your Members of Congress and give them your top three priorities from the list above. 

It’s time for the American people to get the support we deserve.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling the Senate to convict Trump and bar him from holding office again, and get your copy of the delightful “I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening)” by Pantsuit Politics hosts, Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth A. Silvers, a fun read to help us cope with the aftermath of a post-Trump America.
