As a coalition of some of the nation’s largest labor unions and environmental organizations, collectively representing millions of members and supporters, the BlueGreen Alliance and its partners urge you to pass legislation to provide urgently needed relief to the COVID-19 crisis and make the strategic investments necessary for a sustained, clean, and just economic recovery.
We thank you for your efforts to date to address the crisis, yet urgent relief is still needed. America has surpassed 25 million cases and 419,000 deaths due to COVID-19. Nearly a year into this pandemic, cases are reaching record-highs, unemployment is once again rising, state and local governments are ravaged, and workers continue to struggle to stay safe and healthy on the job. We urge you to build on President Biden’s American Rescue Plan to deliver a relief package focused on working people and the most vulnerable that safeguards working peoples’ jobs, homes, and livelihoods.
