Today’s Action: Call Senators to demand they pass the HEROES Act over August recess

Mitch McConnell has released the Senate to August recess without a deal with Democrats over the latest pandemic relief package. Unless the negotiations continue over recess and the Senate reconvenes for a vote, 32 million jobless Americans will attempt to survive through Labor Day without federal unemployment assistance or an eviction moratorium.

GOP Senators up for reelection this November know their voters need a strong financial safety net to survive the pandemic but seem uninterested in providing one. Meanwhile, Trump is on his own planet, releasing executive orders that aren’t predicted to help at all.

The HEROES Act, passed by the House, has broad support with the economic, public health, and election protection voters need and want.

Email or call your Senators and demand they pass the HEROES Act to extend the boosted unemployment assistance, protect against evictions, and fund states and USPS.

We’re approaching 170,000 deaths. The GOP, despite its political claims to the contrary as they seek to control women’s bodies, clearly does not care about life. But they do care about getting reelected.

So while our Senators are at home, we need to call their local offices. Every. Single. Day. Flood the phones to show them the life or death urgency in passing a stimulus package that actually addresses unemployment, election safety and security, hazard pay for essential workers, and funding for cash-strapped states.

What are they waiting for?

Call (202.224.3121) or email your Senators and tell them that the only acceptable outcome of recess negotiations is passing the HEROES Act. We need robust unemployment assistance, boosted election safety, housing security, funding for USPS and states, and worker protections.
