Tell Congressional Republicans: Extend Unemployment Insurance

Enough Republicans in the Senate have now signed onto a bipartisan agreement to overcome a filibuster and extend unemployment insurance benefits for millions of Americans who are looking for work. Now, we just need to make sure that this agreement passes the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

Sign the petition: tell congressional Republicans to work with us to restore unemployment benefits to our communities.


For thousands of families here in Hawaii, and millions of Americans across the country, unemployment insurance benefits have been a lifeline that’s meant the difference between keeping their heads above water or sinking into poverty.

Unemployment insurance also grows our economy -- without extending these benefits, our country could lose 240,000 jobs in 2014.

It’s time for Congress to stand up for our communities, and extend unemployment insurance benefits.
