Action Alert
Ending the Government Shutdown
As the partial government shutdown drags well into its third week, the human cost of the shutdown is coming into sharp focus. The contingency funds for agencies that provide housing assistance, nutrition programs for children and pregnant women, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) are in danger of running out. Further, over 800,000 workers are either furloughed or being required to work without pay, many more thousands of contractors and support businesses are being impacted, the National Parks and other public lands are languishing under serious abuse without Park Rangers to maintain order, Indian Health preventive services are becoming inaccessible, and scientists are unable to access important data. And most importantly, people’s lives and livelihoods are being put at risk. The most vulnerable people in our society are the ones who are most greatly affected by a prolonged shutdown. The government is failing all of us when it is not working.
