Step one—Find your representative here.
Step two—Call (202) 224-3121 for the Congressional switchboard operator and ask for your Member of Congress.
Step three—Tell your Representative/Senator to support! Here’s a script to make it easier for you:
Hi my name is ________ and I am a constituent from ________.
I’m worried that the Corona Virus is having devastating impacts on vulnerable people—like working families here in (our state/town) ________.
That’s why I’m calling to ask the Representative/Senator to act now to protect the most vulnerable people by providing:
- Universal, permanent paid sick time and paid leave FOR ALL WORKERS –not just some.
- Direct cash payments to all individuals and stronger unemployment insurance for workers who lose their jobs.
- No blank checks for corporations. If companies want taxpayer dollars, there must be strings attached to protect working people.
