TAKE ACTION: Help ensure families have what they need during the Coronavirus pandemic
As our country struggles to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") pandemic, Congress must take swift action to ensure families have what they need to care for their young children. ACNJ is calling upon advocates to call on Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker to pass the Families First Coronavirus Response ("Families First") Act. This critical legislation will provide families:
Increased funding for medical assistance for the duration of the pandemic;
Increased funding for Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to fight food insecurities as families lose wages and children lose access to free or reduced-price meals in schools and child care;
Emergency paid sick days and paid leave; and
Extended federal funding for unemployment compensation.
Complete this form to email Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker, or call them to let the know that we need to pass the Families First Act!

My name is ____________. I’m a constituent, and I am calling to urge the Senator to support New Jersey's families and babies by passing the Families First Coronavirus Response Act immediately. To protect our state’s health, families must have the support they need to comply with public health recommendations, including emergency medical assistance, access to nutrition assistance programs, and emergency paid sick days and paid leave. I urge the Senator to take swift action to protect our families, today and into the future.
