Call Your Senator: Demand State and Local Aid

The economy hemorrhaged nearly 1 million public service jobs in April. That is far and away the biggest one-month drop ever. This is a five-alarm fire. Congress has to act quickly and ambitiously. Everything that matters in our communities — public safety, public schools, public health and more — hangs in the balance right now.

Call your senator and demand Congress deliver as much state and local government aid as needed to keep our public services running.

Now, in the middle of a life-and-death public health crisis, is not the time to be handing out pink slips to the front-line fighters like you who keep our communities strong. We need public service workers on the job now more than ever.

Tell Congress: Laying off more public service workers will turn a recession into a depression.
