Congress: Extend Unemployment Benefits NOW!!!

The Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program ended between Christmas and New Year's Day for 1.3 million jobless Americans. The EUC should continue until the economy picks up and jobs are available again. There are still three jobless people for every job in the U.S.

Why is this important?

This petition is being used to organize an Activist Alliance to GET THIS DONE. Together we CAN do this. Each week I post a blog with the latest news and tools for coordinated actions to build support in Congress for an extension of long-term unemployment benefits. The blog is here:

Sign the petition now and JOIN US! (I will never ask you for money-only action!)


Reasons for signing

  • I know many hardworking people who cannot work until everything is fully open. These are people who have worked and paid taxes all their working lives. They deserve our support now. That's one reason we all, including those currently affected, pay into the system.
  • I am a gig worker, and my jobs will not resume any time soon. I have a young family (3 children under 3), and I wouldn’t be able to survive.
  • I am a single mom of 2 who was laid off my job due to Covid19 and I have not been able to find a job.
