David is a husband and a dad living in Wisconsin who knows that essential workers are responsible for keeping his family safe and his community going. It’s time for the federal government to give these workers the same recognition by supporting them with municipal aid.

“As I write this from the comfort of my own home, I can’t help but think of those who CAN’T be home right now. A giant THANK YOU to these essential workers. 

Before the battle against COVID-19 turned you into frontline responders, you were the people who made America happen. Now, with all of your focus on serving communities through this crisis, you are the people who are keeping America running.

You are the EMS workers who are often first on the scene, the custodians disinfecting buildings, the home care providers who help our most vulnerable, the nurses caring for sick patients, water treatment workers who look out for our safety, amongst many others. And you are facing many challenges right now. But one of your key fights is to make sure that you have the support you need from the government that will allow you to stay on the job and continue the public service our communities rely on.”

As I write this from the comfort of my own home, I can't help but think of those who can't be home right now. This is both a thank you to these essential workers and a reminder we need to continue supporting them. ❤️ — Before the battle against COVID-19 turned you into frontline responders, you were the people who made America happen.
