Indivisible Project Statement on Passage of Heroes Act


May 15, 2020

Washington, DC — Today, Angel Padilla, National Policy Director for Indivisible, issued the following statement: 

“Today, with the House passage of the Heroes Act, we are a step closer to the type of response we deserve from our government--one that is competent and recognizes the realities of this national emergency. 

“The Heroes Act would provide the funding necessary to secure our elections, extend the disaster unemployment insurance that is keeping millions afloat, and would expand protections for frontline and essential workers. And, despite Republican efforts to strip them, it would also provide protections and support for immigrant families that so far have been left out of Congress’ relief packages. 

"We support this bill but admit it still contains major room for improvement, particularly in protecting paychecks and expansions to health care coverage. We will continue to fight for those improvements while working to ensure its strong provisions remain intact when the bill meets the Grim Reaper in the Senate.”
