Support COVID-19 Relief for the Poor and Vulnerable
Congressional leaders are in the final days of negotiations on a new COVID-19 relief bill that risks leaving out the poor and vulnerable. This negotiated package will likely be introduced in the U.S. Senate and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is urging Catholics to contact their Senators.
Families and individuals are facing immediate hardships: rent is due, food prices are rising, layoffs continue, access to healthcare is being lost, and those who are most vulnerable in the criminal justice system are not being adequately protected from the coronavirus. Please tell your Senator to act now to provide relief to the homeless, the hungry, the jobless, the uninsured, the immigrant, the incarcerated, and to public and private schools.
To send your message and to learn more about the USCCB's priorities for federal pandemic relief, please go to the USCCB Action Alert.
Thank you for supporting those most in need!
