Congress: Extend Unemployment Benefits NOW!!!

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

The Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program ended between Christmas and New Year's Day for 1.3 million jobless Americans. The EUC should continue until the economy picks up and jobs are available again. There are still three jobless people for every job in the U.S.
There are currently 55,193 signatures. NEW goal - We need 75,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Each week I post a blog with the latest news and tools for coordinated actions to build support in Congress for an extension of long-term unemployment benefits. The blog is here: https://aa4u.squarespace.com/news/
