Pass the American Rescue Act

Share This

President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and their team have been working at a furious pace to identify what needs to happen fast—to contain the coronavirus, to get our country vaccinated, to help struggling Americans and their communities, and to start reversing the discriminatory, hate-driven executive actions of the last four years. But Biden and Harris cannot do it alone. Now is the time for us to roll up our sleeves and work together to build back better.
 
There’s no better way to start this work than by passing the $1.9 trillion rescue bill Biden proposed —the American Rescue Act. It’s the Biden plan to curb the coronavirus, get the country vaccinated and invest resources where they are needed most, including billions for states, schools and localities.
 
 
Unity is more than just about lawmakers agreeing on a piece of legislation—it’s about getting vaccines in arms, safely reopening schools for in-person instruction, giving every American a chance to survive the crises facing our nation, and preserving critical jobs and services in our states, cities and town.
 
Unity isn’t about politicians, it’s about the American people and what they need. And they need Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan to pass, to beat the coronavirus and get America back to work. Click here to write to your lawmakers and tell them to vote for the American Rescue Plan.
 
We need our leaders in Washington, D.C., to take bold, decisive action, which includes:
  • Putting an additional $1,400 in people’s pockets to help stimulate the economy AND help working families through the public health and economic crises we face.
  • Providing hundreds of billions of dollars for COVID-19 testing, tracing and vaccine distribution.
  • Saving the essential jobs of firefighters, teachers and EMTs, and critical services like water testing, sanitation and public health, with $350 billion in long-delayed but urgently needed aid to our cash-strapped cities, states, towns and tribes.
  • Helping public schools reopen safely with $130 billion to help put in place the necessary guardrails, infrastructure improvements, and services to address the academic, social, emotional and mental health needs of the nation’s students.
  • Providing and extending $400 supplements to people receiving unemployment, and providing critical assistance for child care and child care providers.
  • Boosting the minimum wage to $15 an hour, and expanding paid leave so that more people can stay home when they are sick or need to take care of sick loved ones.
Unity means coming together to pass a stimulus that’s big enough to help—not kowtowing to politicians who want to stand in the way of our nation’s recovery.
