Happening today at 2pm! Millions of essential workers rely on transit to reach their jobs. But without emergency funding, transit won’t be able to get them there much longer. We've called for $32 billion in federal funds to ensure that America's public transit agencies can survive the COVID19 crisis and continue serving riders.

Join Senator Chuck Schumer, Congressman Jerry Nadler and Congressman Chuy Garcia for a virtual rally today at 2 pm ET. #SaveTransit

Our friends at Put People First! PA are currently fighting to create a Public Healthcare Advocate for the state of PA. This would be a state office whose job it is to defend our rights and to help people get the healthcare we all need -- someone you can call when your healthcare needs aren't met.

They are asking folks to take this Healthcare as a Human Right Survey (bit.ly/PghCovid19Survey). Your answers to this survey will help us understand what Allegheny County residents are going through during this challenging time, so that we can organize together for our human rights and make a stronger case for creating the Public Healthcare Advocate. All your answers will be kept in the strictest confidentiality. Thank you for sharing your story!
