Background/Messaging: Congress must pass a bold reconciliation package necessary to lift the country out of the devastating economic and health crisis caused by COVID-19. The reconciliation package making its way through Congress would enact President Biden’s American Rescue Plan and will provide desperately needed relief. For more information about the critical nutrition provisions in the bill, read FRAC’s Priorities for the Current Budget Reconciliation Bill, S. Con. Res. 5.
Join us today to urge Congress: pass the #AmericanRescuePlan, which will help millions of struggling families get the nutrition and other critical support they need.
Thanks to the Coalition on Human Needs, MomsRising, and NETWORK for leading this effort.
