Demand Action from Our Elected Leaders
Senators Maria Collett and Lindsey Williams have introduced the American Working Family Relief Action Plan to provide frontline workers with the tools they need to maintain their mental and physical health during the COVID-19 pandemic. This act will:
- Provide emergency funding for safety equipment, including personal protective equipment such as N95 masks, and mental health supports for all essential workers
- Create clear standards for the implementation of containment control plans in healthcare facilities
- Prioritize frontline workers for COVID-19 testing
- Suspend or limit in-person services by shifting to virtual assistance working standards for all essential workers
- Require cleaning standards for workplaces that remain open to meet or exceed state and federal standards for COVID-19 prevention.
Take action today to demand that our elected officials #ProtectAllWorkers.
