Dear 121RN Members:
Congress has passed multiple bills in response to the COVID-19 crisis, but so far they have fallen short of providing the support we need. We still lack PPE, sufficient sick leave, and more.
Call Congress *TODAY* to tell them: Pass the HEROES ACT. Members of Congress need to hear our loud demand to #ProtectAllWorkers NOW.
The HEROES Act Will Authorize:
- $200 billion in hazard pay for essential workers
- $75 billion for testing & contact tracing
Please click here to tell your member of Congress to vote YES on the HEROES Act.
And here in California, there's another opportunity to make sure our state legislators hear directly from frontline healthcare workers about the critical lack of PPE in our hospitals. Please be a part of this upcoming *online* conversation:
Wednesday, May 20th, 2:30–4:00 PM
Sen. Stern (SD 27)
