Support Non-Profit 501(c)(5) Labor Unions

April 22, 2020

Please join us in sending a letter to Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader McCarthy urging support for financial relief for our nation’s unions. The spread of COVID-19 has affected all sectors of the U.S. economy, but it has had a disproportionate impact on
nonprofit 501(c)(5) organizations like labor unions and the workers they represent.

Support our Frontline Workers during COVID-19

April 22, 2020

We invite you to join as a co-sponsor of the COVID-19 Frontline Worker Recognition Resolution recognizing our frontline workers’ contributions during the coronavirus pandemic. As veterans of the military and of the nation’s defense
and intelligence agencies, we recognize that our fight against COVID-19 is America’s latest war, and that these workers are serving on the frontlines. They are our infantry and our logistics, our first and last lines of defense, and this resolution serves
as a token of our appreciation for their heroic work. 

Resolution to Ensure Congress Can Continue its Work During the Coronavirus Pandemic

April 22, 2020

The continued impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are staggering. In the U.S. alone, there are over 824,000 confirmed cases, more than 45,000 lives lost, and more than 22 million initial unemployment claims. This crisis has rippled across the country, impacting
the lives and livelihoods of our families, friends, and neighbors in every one of our Congressional districts.

Sign Letter to Preserve the Research Enterprise in CARES 2

April 22, 2020

Please join us in sending a letter to leadership calling for funding in the next coronavirus relief package to preserve the research enterprise. Like most businesses across the country, research labs have experienced closures, slowdowns, and harm to their

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Fully Fund PPP

April 22, 2020

These unprecedented times have hit small businesses especially hard. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was designed as a lifeline to protect these pillars of our communities. The PPP was rolled out swiftly and has already helped nearly 1.6 million firms
nationwide. However, incredible demand has seen the initial $350 billion investment run dry.

Become a Cosponsor of the COVID-19 Commission Act

April 22, 2020

Presently, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are over 2,544,000 across the world and over 810,000 in the United States. While we do not yet know the full impact COVID-19 will have on the nation, already more Americans have been killed by the virus than
died in the September 11, 2001 attacks.  After those attacks, the 9/11 Commission was established to provide a full accounting of the circumstances surrounding the attacks and the Commission’s recommendations drove massive reforms to how we share intelligence
and organize the government to counter terrorist threats.  It is clear that we, as a nation, are at another inflection point.  Americans today will again demand a full accounting of our level of preparedness and response to this global public health emergency.  

COSPONSOR H.R. 6398: Get Urgently Needed Medical Equipment to Health Care Workers Fighting COVID-19

April 22, 2020

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases have exceeded 2.5-Million across the world and 810,000 in the United States. Unfortunately, the virus is continuing to spread rapidly through our communities and is projected to soon overwhelm our health care system.
Health care providers are being forced to reuse the personal protective equipment (PPE) intended to prevent the spread of disease, ventilator supplies are a fraction of what experts are pleading for, and testing components are in such short supply that only
critically ill individuals can receive the COVID-19 test. The American people and our heroic frontline health care providers are desperate for the resources they need to prevent, identify, and treat COVID-19 cases in order to minimize loss of life.
