Tell Congress: We need a universal basic income

With the ongoing threat of COVID-19, millions of people in the United States need direct cash assistance now to prevent financial hardship.

The full scope of the economic impact of COVID-19 has yet to be seen, but many Americans have already faced layoffs, reduced hours, and paycheck cuts. Without help, small business owners may be forced to close their doors permanently. Entire industries are at risk of collapse.

Congress’ emergency response to the novel coronavirus must prioritize workers’ needs. A universal basic income would give monthly assistance so Americans can pay everyday bills like rent, student loans, and utilities.

Urge Congress to pass a universal basic income to provide direct cash support for families.
