Covid stimulus and relief benefits are set to end Dec 26 and 31, unless Congress passes the proposed $908 billion stimulus package. Call 1-888-754-9091 or text “COVID19” to 747464 to tell Senators Tillis and Burr that relief can’t wait! (If you call back a second time, we’ll connect you with your other U.S. Senator’s office)
Here is a sample call script from Moms Rising: “Pass a COVID-relief package that protects all families and extends paid leave, unemployment benefits, eviction protections and funding for childcare and healthcare.” If you have a personal story about how COVID is impacting you and your family, we encourage you to share it with our Senators.
The suffering Covid continues to cause is huge: almost 300,000 dead, 200,000 new cases a day, and over 11 million still unemployed. The Senate has sat on another relief bill for over six months! This is an emergency, and #ReliefCantWait. Call Tillis and Burr now and tell them to have a heart and do their job.
Get health insurance for 2021:
Healthcare.gov/ <[link removed]> is open and ready for shopping through Dec 15th! The ACA has more plans available for the coming year at a slightly lower price, and it’s important that everyone is able to find the plan that works for them.
Many supports exist to help navigate the world of affordable healthcare including local NC Navigators <[link removed]> and certified enrollment partner websites <[link removed]>. Both of these are great options to find the plan that works best for you! Even if you have your own insurance, please make sure anyone you know who doesn’t is aware of this opportunity and deadline.
Thanks for taking action for public health and safety, and economic justice.
