Support for those affected by Coronavirus

Take action to urge your senators to support first steps in responding to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act provides paid leave, establishes free coronavirus testing, supports strong unemployment benefits, expands food assistance for vulnerable children and families, protects frontline health workers, and provides additional funding to states for the ongoing economic consequences of the pandemic, among other provisions. 

You can reach your senator by calling the capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask to be connected to your senator.
