It’s been months since the Republican-led Senate passed major COVID-19 relief legislation while Americans face the greatest economic despair since the Great Depression. There are over 158,000 deaths and over 4.8 million cases of COVID-19 in the United States, and more than a million Americans have applied for unemployment benefits each week for months. Significant and life-saving action is long overdue.
Congress needs to:
- Extend the $600 weekly unemployment bonus.
- Send more funding to states and localities for their responses to the virus so they can help their residents and economies.
- Expand protections for workers who are returning to their jobs so they can do so without fear.
House Democrats have and already passed a bill that does all of this and more — The HEROES Act
We need you to contact your Senator and tell them to pass The HEROES Act NOW.
