About Recovery Recess

It’s time to make sure the new Congress and President implement the solutions necessary to solve the historic crises our country faces. We expect action that’s responsive to the needs of our communities—Black communities, Indigenous communities, communities of color, working class communities, young people, those who have been excluded from economic opportunity in the past, and those who want to be part of a more just, sustainable, thriving future. We demand a recovery that works for all of us. 

We have a once-in-a-generation chance for Congress to pass a package of transformational economic recovery, rebuilding, and infrastructure legislation. Congress has the ability to put millions of people to work in good, family sustaining climate jobs and care jobs, delivering real climate solutions, and advancing racial, Indigenous, gender, and economic justice. And we're organizing to make them do it, including a major cross-movement ‘Time to Thrive’ day of action all over the country March 31 and the broader Recovery Recess, while our elected officials are home, March 29 through April 11.
