Sign Petition: Tell the Senate to stop the Trump/McConnell Shutdown

Thousands of federal and contract workers like Lila don't have the income to pay their bills and put food on the table due to the shutdown.

And the truth is, Trump and Senate Republicans can put an end to the government shutdown immediately by voting yes on the bipartisan bills already passed by the House.

Sign our petition to demand Trump and McConnell re-open the government so workers like Lila Johnson can pay rent.

Donate to affected workers

Trump, McConnell and Senate Republicans are holding hundreds of thousands of federal workers' paychecks hostage. For many who live paycheck-to-paycheck, that means not being able to pay for their rent, bills and put food on the table. Some are on the verge of being evicted.

If you would like to make a donation to these workers, visit Community Services Agency at and click the 'Donate Now' button. For questions, call Sonté DuCote at 202-974-8226 or
