Sign the Petition: Extend Unemployment Insurance

For many job-seekers, unemployment is the difference between total hopelessness and access to a car, a place to live and food on the table during the toughest job search of their lives. Congress is only in town for a few days before leaving for Thanksgiving. 

Please add your name to our emergency petition. Tell Congress to take urgent action to renew these critical unemployment benefits now.
To Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate:

Your action is urgently needed to renew the federal unemployment insurance programs before they expire Nov. 30. These benefits have a significant, positive impact, not only helping millions of job-seekers in a tough economy, but also providing support for communities striving to achieve a sustained economic recovery.

When Congress reconvenes after the elections, its first priority must be to renew and continue the full federal unemployment benefits program. As the holidays approach, don't turn your backs on America's unemployed workers and their families!
