Tell your Senator to HOLD THE LINE on the HEROES Act

This global pandemic is challenging our social structures to the maximum, exposing the pre-existing conditions of our society – lack of health resources and economic resources for the most vulnerable in our communities. And our city and county workers are on the frontlines putting themselves in harm’s way risking life and death not just for themselves but for their families and neighbors.

The Heroes Act has the ability to make a lasting impact on our social infrastructure and fight to protect all workers, but we need you to HOLD THE LINE and fight.

When you call your Senator – either Senator Harris or Senator Feinstein – you must demand that they fight for state and local funding.

Here are instructions on how to make your call:

  1. Phone Congress
    (844) 967-2163, Press 1
  2. Enter your residence ZIP CODE where you live
  3. You will automatically be connected to your Senator’s office, or you may hit star (*) to move to the next office.
  4. You will talk with a staff member or be asked to leave a message:
  • Hi, my name is FIRST NAME, LAST NAME, and I work at ____________________.
  • I’m calling you, Senator (NAME), because I know you support the HEROES Act. Thank you for that. But I’m asking you to fight like never before and hold the line on state and local funding. Don’t let the Senate water down vital funding for our communities and public services.
  • My colleagues and I are making great sacrifices to battle the coronavirus pandemic, but we need you to do your part to ensure that the HEROES Act passes and so I can continue _______(state what you do)__________________.
  • Thank you.

We must fight for investment in public services that allows us to build a stronger, more inclusive social infrastructure that supports and serves all of us. We must fight for government for all.

Tell the Senate to #ProtectAllWorkers now by putting working people first, with no blank checks for corporations!

We need support and help for one and all families that do not have means of working due to ,the corono virus. I am on social security and am a cross guard with disabilities. As other are in the same position or worse off then me. The rich or well off receive more money which they already have. Myself and many others live by paycheck to paycheck. Please hold the line and your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hi my name is Yevette. I work in the grocery industry in California. I was feeling sick and went to get tested. Sure enough I tested postive. I have no income coming in I’ve been quartine for 10 days so far and I still feel real weak. It would be nice if these people can get there act together instead of getting ready to go on another break. I’m really not proud to be an american anymore. This country is ridiculous. All they care about is the economy.

While my job is essential and have continued to work. My husband and two adult son’s have all been laid off from three different industries. Businesses that have tried to reopen are closing due to distancing rules and being closed. More and more of my clients are calling in everyday being let go, laid off and furloughed. This is not over and will not be for a long time. Taking away the extra $600 from a unemployed is not just effecting them. It effects their family. The extra is not truly extra for most. Now we have to pay for… Read more »

I Wrote Congress Supporting The Heroes Act For $2000 A Month Til This Covid-19 End. Americans Really Need The Support Of The Federal Government To Combat This Pandemic. Covid-19 Is Still Spreading. We Have Been Practicing Social Distancing, Yet It Keeps Spreading. Sending People Back To Work So Soon Is Not Helping When It Comes To Fighting The Pandemic. Yet, If People Don’t Work They Risk Loosing What They Worked So Hard For. The Economy Will Be Able To Stay Neutral With This Heroes Act. This Will Buy More Time While We Find A Cure For It.

I was diagnosed with COPD February 2019. I went back to work part-time after that and worked until March 2020 when I was sick. My immune system is so compromised that if I contract covid-19 it’s probably going to be fatal for me. From March 20 until May 3 the first stimulus money helped me to survive. I applied for unemployment benefits and as of today my case is still pending. Please have compassion for me and others like me. Do what you can to fast track HEROES!!! Many lives depend on it.

Hey I work for a garbadge company in the north state. I have worked through this whole pandemic. Paying my taxes through payroll working. What concerns me is that no one wants to help the people who have been paying for all this have never wavered. With rising grocery costs and finding babysitters. No one thinks about the people that are paying. My well pump went out last week 2000 dollars. As a paying American I feel used and cheated by our government.

Also noted is this vacation credit I have no money for a vacation. I have always lived paycheck to paycheck. I have. Even before the pandemic which I have never stopped working. I work for garbadge company in the Northstate.

At this point the senators have no choice but to continually fund the situation or end up in the hospital themselves this is how bad this virus is on a daily note. The virus is really taking control at the foot holes including the prisoners and in the nursing homes. Which is where the fight should’ have started it was in the nursing homes and prisons places. If they don’t take control of the virus we won’t have a world.

Let’s STOP voting for corporate funded politicians. Only progressives who are grassroots and funded by the people, and who have the people’s’ best interests in mind should be trusted. It’s long past due that we stop voting for these corrupt corporate hacks!

Nothing will change unless we get money out of politics, get rid of the Electoral College and we start electing politicians who will work for the people instead of the corporations. Root out corruption and watch how quickly life gets better for everyone.
