Booksellers are encouraged to participate in the American Booksellers Association’s advocacy campaign asking lawmakers to pass comprehensive pandemic relief. It only takes two minutes with ABA’s easy-to-use advocacy tool.
With Washington on the fence about the need for a large pandemic relief package (and in some cases the need for a package at all), it's critical to let your lawmakers know what small businesses are facing and urge them to act immediately.
As we’ve seen with the multiple piecemeal relief plans that passed in 2020, half-steps are not enough to combat this pandemic. Small businesses need a monumental relief package that meets these monumental times. Passing comprehensive relief now will get the economy back on track much sooner and protect our local communities from further devastation.
Tell your lawmakers that it’s time to pass relief. Booksellers’ outreach can play a critical role on this important issue, and ABA’s tool allows booksellers to send one targeted message to Republican lawmakers and another targeted message to Democratic lawmakers.
