#FundExcludedWorkers Jewish Virtual Town Hall

September 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a Virtual #FundExcludedWorkers Jewish Town Hall! We will come together to hear from community leaders and impacted New Yorkers, and demand an emergency survival fund for excluded workers.

Excluded workers are not eligible for unemployment insurance or other relief that would keep them above water during this pandemic. As a result, our neighbors are facing a wave of evictions and a looming hunger crisis. That’s why Jewish communities are coming together with urgency and moral clarity to tell our elected officials that food, housing, and safety are essential rights. We must fund excluded workers now.
In the days leading up to the High Holy Days, Jewish New Yorkers will gather to call upon our elected officials to deliver emergency benefits to match what other workers get through unemployment insurance. If passed, the Billionaire’s Tax and Worker Bailout Fund (S.8277 | A.10414) would raise an expected $5.5 billion in tax revenue from New York’s wealthiest families, creating an emergency survival fund for workers who were excluded from the stimulus package and other government aid during the pandemic.
