  • Essential Workers Have Essential Rights
    Here in New York City every night at 7PM EST, we show our thanks and appreciation by applauding from our windows to honor the essential workers who are making sure we are safe and healthy, we have the food we need, our lights are on, and our water is running. That undoubtedly makes an impact night after night. What would make an even bigger impact is ensuring that their rights are protected and that essential workers all across America are going to work each day with proper protective gear, hazard pay, and guaranteed sick pay and medical and family leave. This, in addition to the other rights that we are fighting for, will make a real difference in the lives of essential workers all across America. On a personal note: I, like so many Americans, have lost work due to the coronavirus crisis. As someone who would typically be disqualified from receiving UI, I have immense gratitude for Democrats insisting that unemployment benefits be expanded to include gig workers and freelancers. Now, I am asking you to help petition expanding the care even further. Let's get our essential workers protected in the next stimulus package. I'm signing this for my father and my family members who are essential workers. This petition is for you, your loved ones, your friends -- it's a no-brainer. Let's stand in solidarity with our workers on the front lines. Call your representatives. Sign the petition TODAY.

  • Hair Salons/One Client At A Time (Soft Opening April 27th) In North Carolina
    The survival of the independent beauty professionals is at risk. We are facing a grave financial hardship. Most of our licensed individuals are considered 1099 and are being denied unemployment and are not qualifying for SBA loans in NC.

  • Nail Salons 1 client at a time
    Licensed Nail Technicians are independent; self employed as well as small businesses owners going unrecognized by the state and city officials. Some of us also are medically certified and our clients going without care are risking at home injuries and cross contamination.

  • Soft opening for beauty salons
    Health and hygiene is important the general public. We have clients who aren’t able to wash their hair for various reasons. The long term effects of bad hygiene can become worse issues. Also mental health is important. So many people see their stylist to not just look good but feel good about themselves inside and out especially during hard times in a persons life. Our industry is facing a massive financial crisis that will be devastating to many men, women and families if we don’t do something about it now. Our industry is more than beauty. We are professionals, counselors, confidants, educators, friends and family. WE ARE ESSENTIAL!

  • Help Hair Salons Get back to work one client at a time
    Why is this important? The survival of the independent beauty professionals is at risk. Most beauty professionals are sole proprietors and not allowed to file for Wisconsin unemployment until April 21. Not to mention most of the banks that are filing SBA loans are still waiting for guidance from the Federal Government, so we are placed at the bottom of the list when it comes to even APPLYING for these loans.

  • Open hair salons, one client at a time.
    Servicing one client at a time (while wearing a mask & gloves) poses little to no risk of spreading the virus, as compared to 20 or more people in a grocery store or 10 plus people at restaurants picking up food.

  • HAIRDRESSERS/ESTHETICIAN/NAIL TECHS/ all independent contractors are ESSENTIAL!
    Landlords are still requiring us to pay our building leases and other bills but our stylists /artists are unable to afford to pay rent. Shop owners are severely suffering! We do NOT want to lose our businesses or go into debt to keep our business open. Image such hair, nails, skin, massage and tattoos etc... is important to clients due their confidence, self-esteem, and even mental health.

  • Vice President Elizabeth Ann Warren!
    With our nation facing a devastating health and financial crisis, we need, in the Office of The Vice President, a woman whose intelligence, tenacity, and integrity is beyond reproach; a woman broadly respected by the Democratic Party; a woman FEARED by the usual suspects, who are already using this crisis for their own enrichment and to further dismantle the laws and regulations which protect: the working class, our most vulnerable citizens, the environment, and everyone’s right to be heard and represented. Elizabeth Ann Warren has the intelligence, heart, and grit we trust and need, at this pivotal moment in our nation’s history. No other Vice-Presidential choice will do! Joe, No matter how high we rise, our time on this Earth is limited, yet the touches of our lives may reach distant generations. The future’s faces will smile more, or less, depending upon the choices you will make as our President. Please help end the stark division in which children smile more, and which smile less. We live in an age of miracles. We can all live happier and healthier lives, and have more cherished moments, with those we love, but we need partnerships of equality and equity to arrive there. That is what we are asking Joe. Stand beside Elizabeth, and together, help heal a nation, and lead the way to more meaningful and rewarding lives for all. God bless you, Sir, the undersigned
