Washington, DC — Today, Mary Small, acting National Policy Director for Indivisible, issued the following statement:

“Congress is on the cusp of going home for the holidays without adequate financial assistance for families and workers struggling during a pandemic. Indivisible stands firm that passing a relief package that includes enhanced unemployment benefits and direct cash assistance should be Congress' top priority.

To that end, Indivisible strongly supports Rep. Jayapal and the Congressional Progressive Caucus in demanding that any COVID relief package include survival checks and enhanced UI - negotiators must prioritize workers and families. That is simply the bare minimum we should expect. The eight months people have gone without additional help has been too much compromise already."
