🔶 Write a Letter to the Editor: Demand Congress Pass a People’s Bailout
Use Indivisible’s tool linked below to contact your local newspaper about the importance of centering people over profits in any economic response to coronavirus and urge your neighbors to join you in this fight. Right now, taking control of the narrative and showing what’s really happening in Congress as decisions are being made is crucially important. Even if you’ve never written a letter to the editor before, your voice can make a difference! Indivisible included talking points, writing tips, and a sample letter to help. https://act.indivisible.org/…/write-lte-COVID-constituent-s…
Congress has now passed three coronavirus-related response bills. While these bills have temporarily filled in important gaps in our paid sick leave, unemployment insurance, and health care systems, they are grossly insufficient given the magnitude of the current crisis. What’s worse, in return for helping people who are desperately in need of support, Trump and his Republican allies demanded hundreds of billions of dollars in unaccountable corporate bailouts. This crisis isn’t over and soon Congress will likely have to pass at least one additional response package. We need to continue demanding that any coronavirus response legislation puts people’s needs ahead of corporate profits — in other words, we need a People’s Bailout. Submit a letter to the editor now to explain to your neighbors and Congress the importance of a People’s Bailout and urge your neighbors to get involved in this fight.
