Our COVID-19 response has failed Americans. We need to pass the HEROES Act Now!
Contact your Senators now and tell them to pass the HEROES Act
As COVID-19 continues to sweep its way through the nation, millions of Americans are sick, unemployed or at risk of losing their homes.
As a country, we have failed to effectively curb the spread of the virus and our attempts to save the economy have stumbled. We can no longer sit by idly while Americans' lives and livelihoods are threatened before our eyes.
Ed Young's piece in the Atlantic said it best:
The coronavirus found, exploited, and widened every inequity that the U.S. had to offer. Elderly people, already pushed to the fringes of society, were treated as acceptable losses. Women were more likely to lose jobs than men, and also shouldered extra burdens of child care and domestic work, while facing rising rates of domestic violence. In half of the states, people with dementia and intellectual disabilities faced policies that threatened to deny them access to lifesaving ventilators.
Yet, negotiations for COVID-19 relief have stalled. After hours and hours of talks this week, there is still no deal in sight. And in the backdrop, the U.S. has surpassed 160,000 deaths from the virus.
We can't continue to fail Americans. A solution has been on the table for 84 days and counting. We need to pass the HEROES Act now.
Contact your Senators and tell them to pass the HEROES Act -- Americans' lives depend on it.
