In response to the massive public health and economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government has passed a historic  $2.3 trillion relief and recovery package. The legislation enacted so far takes some important steps towards responding to the crisis. But it does not do enough, and Congress will have to return to ensure that the people most in need – and whose aid will do the most to spur recovery – get adequate help. Join CHN as we examine the good and the bad of what's available so far, and the human needs that still must be addressed in a fourth package. We'll discuss cash assistance, expanded benefits, help for nonprofits, and new programs such as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance. And we'll let you know how you can take action to call on Congress to take the next steps needed.  

If we cast aside any of us - whether incarcerated, homeless, immigrant, poor – it will hurt all of us. Congress may have dispersed, like all of us, but we still must work together to recover from this pandemic.

This webinar will be close-captioned. Due to technical limitations, we are limited in the number of registrants we can receive. If you try to register but can't sign up, please contact Nicolai Haddal to ensure you receive a recording: nhaddal@chn.org
