Congress is starting negotiations on their next COVID-19 package, hoping to finalize a deal before they adjourn for the August recess next week.
Neither the current House HEROES Act nor the Senate HEALS Act meaningfully address the needs of sexual assault victims or Survivors of Color, and the Senate bill fails to include a desperately needed legislative fix to ensure the viability of the Crime Victim Fund or any provisions for non-citizen immigrant survivors.

Congress needs to hear from you, urging them to address all survivors’ needs in the pandemic.
