We find ourselves in unprecedented times: the Coronavirus health pandemic, an economic crisis that is leading to a housing and employment crisis not seen in generations, and a grassroots uprising demanding the dismantling of racist systems and an end to murder and violence against black people. Income Movement is helping lead a grassroots movement that demands our government puts the economic health and wellbeing of people first, before institutions or corporations.
At the heart of all of these issues is the economy. Money is power. And far too little money is flowing into the hands of the people.
As we enter 2021, we have a new Congress and new presidential administration. We also have millions of people experiencing unprecedented economic devastation. Our leaders must find innovative solutions that will allow for quick and immediate support to save millions from going hungry and being evicted from their homes. Recurring stimulus checks is that solution. Help us send this message.
The New Congress means a new opportunity to demand Recurring Cash Payments be provided for The People.
It's up to us to set the tone for what's expected and how critical their fight for recurring cash payments are.
January is a critical month to get ahead of our representatives and let them know what this new Congress needs to prioritize.
Writing a letter is great, making a phone call is also pretty amazing! Your Representative and Senators take notice when their constituents call them. This link will take you to a tool that will connect you directly to them & includes some key points & a script to follow! Flooding their phones is an important action we can do to make them prioritize monthly stimulus checks.
As the Biden administration takes office, the country is deeply struggling. It took nine months for Congress to send a second stimulus check, and just moments to spend it. Like we’ve been saying from the beginning of this pandemic, people need to know when the next check is coming. And the best thing our government can do right now is send emergency money to the people on a monthly basis. Sign to join our movement to get recurring checks to the people.Sign the petition
The press is another area that we can apply pressure to Senators. Senate aides track the stories and issues that are brought up in local newspapers to better understand the needs of their constituents. Write a letter to the editor today and use the press to help pressure our leaders! Your voice in your community can have profound impacts to shift the conversation for monthly stimulus checks. We'll let you know when your LTE gets published!tools to help
Over the summer, people in cities across the country participated in the Shake Up Congress Protest and Car Parade and delivered The People's Stimulus demands to Congresspeople's homes and offices. These efforts were in support of $2000 recurring payments to people during this crisis. A clear message was sent: Congress must do more to support people so we are safe and healthy during this pandemic.
If you think Congress should do better, you must take time to tell them now. Ask that they bail out people, not big businesses and corporations.
