On Friday, May 8th, we dedicated our weekly Fire Drill Friday to drive tens of thousands of calls to Congress to vocalize support for a strong fourth relief package that includes the demands of the Essential Worker Bill of Rights and does not include any giveaways to fossil fuel shareholders and executives.
You still take action to demand an Essential Worker's Bill of Rights by calling your member of Congress at 1-877-823-7391 right now!
It’s time for Congress to pass an economic relief package that provides healthcare, paid sick leave, and necessary work protections for all — not more unrestricted corporate and fossil fuel industry handouts.
Together, we can ensure that our elected officials vote for COVID-19 relief that puts people first, not corporations.
