Take Action

On July 22, the AFL-CIO is leading a national call-in day to demand that the Senate take up the HEROES Act.

America faces a crisis on three critical fronts: a public health pandemic, an economic free fall and long-standing structural racism. Working people need safe jobs, economic security and freedom from systemic racism. Delivering on economic essentials included in the HEROES Act is an absolute minimum requirement for stopping the free fall into even deeper and deadly racial inequality.

America faces crises on three critical fronts: a public health pandemic, an economic free fall and long-standing structural racism.  As America’s labor movement, we must urgently address all three with precision and purpose. They cannot be fixed separately.

America’s Five Economic Essentials must be combined with substantial policing reforms and implemented in ways that recognize the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on workers of color. This comprehensive agenda for the three crises addresses all working people’s needs for safe jobs, economic security and freedom from systemic racism. Drive by Believe Plaza in downtown Reno on June 17 at 9:30AM to demand America's 5 Economic Essentials for Racial and Economic Justice and honk to show your support.

We must also demand that Congress pass the HEROES Act and other racial and economic justice legislation. Click the button below to sign your support of the HEROES Act - and call your Senator to demand their support!

The HEROES Act has been sitting on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s desk for months, but now he wants to ram through a Supreme Court nomination. Tell your senators we need COVID-19 relief, not a Supreme Court power grab.

The labor movement is working nonstop to ensure workers devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic receive the protections and support needed during this challenging time. Get involved and make sure the needs of working people are heard.
