Congress has taken unprecedented action, passing three bills with historic price tags, to address the economic fallout from the coronavirus crisis. But have they done enough to help ordinary people?
Top 3 actions you can take this week:
- CUFA and other groups across the nation are calling for a People's Bailout. Read the 5 principles here.
- Take action to tell your members of Congress we need a People's Bailout now, not more bailouts for the rich.
- Share the People's Bailout with friends and family.
What's happening this week:
