Christians Supporting the American Rescue Plan

Dear Members of Congress,

After months of inaction, Americans everywhere are hurting and they need relief now. Our tax dollars should serve our needs—especially when we’re struggling. That’s why we’re calling for our elected leaders to pass the national Rescue Relief Package. Working Americans need an immediate, large-scale rescue package that includes recurring survival checks, expanded unemployment benefits, a higher minimum wage, and free universal COVID vaccine distribution. 

As the crisis disrupts our daily lives, including our ability to work, pay rent and send our kids to school, we need to ensure working people can make ends meet, not hand tax breaks to the richest 1% and finance bailouts for corporations. The choices our government makes now to help us weather the outbreak of this virus can also set a better course for the future of our communities. Now is the time for us to unite across our differences and make policy choices that help every-day people in pursuit of a safe and thriving nation.

We cannot go back to business as usual because business as usual is what created this crisis. For too long, the few have had their say over the many by keeping us divided. We can make sure we have what we need to get and stay well. Because the future is what we do together. We call on our members of Congress to do their jobs and swiftly pass a relief bill to jumpstart our economic recovery. Why are our Tennessee Congress people standing directly in the way of a better post-pandemic life for Americans after 10+ months of under-delivering?

Add your name to the list of Tennesseans who want to see our elected officials pass this necessary recovery to help our neighbors instead of focusing on messaging that seeks to divide us.
