We’ve been fighting for the past twenty-two months to make sure Congress provides relief for our industry. The Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) was a good start, but more than 177,000 businesses that applied for aid were left behind when funding was distributed. We know the situation is dire and are devastated with the daily news of neighborhood restaurants and bars going out of business across the country.
That’s why we’re asking you to join today’s National Day of Action to Save Restaurants. We’ve rolled out a new tool that makes it easier than ever to call Congress, and to do it right from your computer – when you use it, you’ll receive a call, get a script to speak to your Senators, and you will be automatically connected to your representatives. We know many of you have been calling your elected officials, and this is a moment for us to get others who aren’t seasoned advocates involved. Our representatives need to hear directly from all of us why restaurant relief isn’t optional. Can you share this tool with everyone in your network, and make another round of calls to your own representatives TODAY?
You can also use this graphic and others in our social media toolkit to spread awareness and encourage action from your colleagues, staff, neighbors, friends and family.
We have the power to make sure every restaurant and bar receives the assistance they need to recover from pandemic-related closures, cancellations, rising costs, and the myriad challenges we now face. Please take a moment to make a call today and spread the word so we can help restaurants and the millions of livelihoods they support.
