COVID 19 as a Working Parent

This has been a trying two months for all of us we hope this finds you healthy and as happy as can be in our new normal.

But of course, this is not normal and “happy” has become the ultimate sliding scale. Over 36 million Americans have lost their jobs. Even more have seen their hours cuts or salaries reduced. In the blink of an eye, our kids have gone from overscheduled to watching those weird mid-70’s Disney movies with Don Knotts.

We are … surviving, doing our best to stay healthy, pay our bills, and keep our families from melting down. The last thing on your mind is fundraising for the 2020 election. Frankly, it hasn’t been our minds either. This is a PAC that is run by working parents. We are going through the same things right now. On our board, we’re struggling with furlough, job loss, cut salaries, special needs kids, and homeschooling … and we’re tired. But we are also acutely aware of why it matters who leads and who is serving in Congress.

That’s where you come in. If all our followers donated $5 today, we could support 20 more candidates in November.

The members we helped elect in 2018 have been vital to the gains working families have made in the last year and a half. Our alumni have pushed for working families to be included in COVID relief packages. They have worked for hazard pay for our first responders and frontline retail workers. They have pushed for help with childcare in a time which has seen our long standing systems upended. They have pushed for the resources our schools need to adjust to this new and awful reality of distance learning.

As the nation continues to cope with this pandemic, we can’t leave families behind. Our small investments now can ensure that we come out of this awful time stronger.
We are raising our future.

Thank you for your support.
