AFL-CIO: Call your senators today and tell them we need at least $1 trillion in federal aid to our states, cities, towns and schools.

The Senate plans to go on vacation AGAIN starting Friday, August 7th. But our communities-and the front-line workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic and helping Americans who have lost their jobs-can’t afford to wait any longer.

Call your senators today and tell them we need at least $1 trillion in federal aid to our states, cities, towns and schools.

Without this relief package, we won’t be able to keep nurses and other front-line health care workers on the job. Our schools won’t be able to reopen safely. Help for Americans who lost their jobs will slow even further. The trash won’t get picked up, and 911 response times will only increase.

This isn’t a blue state or a red state issue. Federal help for America’s states, cities, towns and schools is critical to saving the essential public services that all of our people and communities rely on every single day. It’s these services that we need to beat this pandemic and safely reopen the economy. We cannot choose between the two-they go hand in hand.

Call your senators today and tell them we need at least $1 trillion in federal aid to our states, cities, towns and schools.

Each day the Senate delays is another day of essential public services being cut and front-line public service workers being thanked with a pink slip. Continued inaction will be catastrophic for the economy and our chances of recovery.

Tell your senators to stop delaying and save our public services.

Our lives and livelihoods are on the line.

In Solidarity,

Team AFL-CIO
