Today’s Action: Tell the Senate to pass the HEROES Act

The House has passed the HEROES Act, an 1800-page piece of legislation that will put a whopping $3 trillion into personal financial support, voting protections, free testing and treatment for all, and economic stimulation.

Now the bill has moved to the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is stalling on any more legislation to assist in the pandemic, even as the economy continues to plummet and the American death toll has officially passed 100,000.

The Senate cannot delay any longer! Call or email your Senators and tell them to pass the HEROES Act. 

The Democrats’ plan will provide $1 trillion in funding for state and local governments, a second stimulus check for households (including immigrants), funding for the United States Postal Service, moratoriums on evictions, and $200 billion in hazard pay for essential workers. It also includes $3.6 billion to fund a national option to vote-by-mail and boosted in-person safety measures for this November’s election.

It’s vitally important that the Senate move forward on these lifesaving and economy-boosting measures literally as soon as possible. The HEROES Act is a strong negotiating tool for Democrats in the Senate, and it’s just as important that Dems know we have their backs as it is for Republicans to hear how badly we need the support.

Tell your Senators that we can’t afford to wait. The Senate must pass the HEROES Act because Americans need these actions to survive this crisis. Do it today!
