COVID-19 continues to pose an unprecedented public health, economic, and unemployment crisis across our country that is magnifying the effects of systemic racism and long-standing racial and economic disparities. And the needs of our nation’s most vulnerable children—especially Black children and other children of color, immigrant children, and children in the child welfare system—are growing more urgent each day.

Help us hold Senate leaders accountable for their promises: tell your Senators the next COVID relief package must include meaningful action to take care of our kids NOW  – and tell them to act now!

Dear [Decision Maker],

In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, vulnerable children could get left behind. I am calling on you and your Senate colleagues to urgently pass a new COVID-19 relief package that prioritizes the needs of vulnerable children and families.

Even before this crisis, millions of families were struggling to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. With unemployment skyrocketing and child hunger and poverty on the rise, our country's children don't have another minute to wait. I'm counting on you to take urgent action to ensure children and families have the additional relief they need to weather this storm.
