"Fast for the Day": Indiana AFL-CIO Protest

Tuesday, August 11, 2020 - 8:00am

Millions of Americans are struggling to feed their families now that the $600 unemployment checks have ended. The last check went out July 25, and still the Senate is refusing to act—more than two months after the House passed the HEROES Act.

Tomorrow, August 11, I'm challenging myself and working people across Indiana to stand in solidarity with families going hungry, by pledging to fast for the day and calling on the Senate to provide much needed relief for laid-off workers.

Will you join me by pledging to join the national fast on Aug. 11?

John, here’s the plan:

  1. Today, make the pledge to fast.

  2. On Aug. 11, post an “empty plate” solidarity picture on social media with a message to your Senators. Don’t forget to tag Senators who refuse to pass the HEROES Act, like Senator Braun and Senator Young. Pledge now and we’ll send you instructions!

By pledging today, you are helping to send a message to America’s families everywhere who are struggling right now that they are not alone.

In solidarity,

Brett Voorhies
