WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Real Recovery Now! and Invest in America Action released a letter signed by nearly 100 organizations urging Congress to pass the Build Back Better Agenda and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal together this week.

View the letter and full list of signers here.

Read the letter below:

Right now, Congress has the chance to deliver transformational change to working people and families across the country with the Build Back Better Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal.

These plans are a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation’s future that will create millions of good-paying jobs, cut costs for families, and cut taxes for the middle class.

We urgently need both of these plans to make our economy fairer, address the many crises facing American communities, and rebuild the middle class — the backbone of our country.

Now is the time to create generations of prosperity for American families and communities. We urge Congress to swiftly pass the Build Back Better Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal together this week.

“There is extraordinary clarity across the progressive movement that it is long past time to deliver on jobs, care, climate, and immigration,” said Ilya Sheyman, co-director at Real Recovery Now! “Congress needs to pass the Build Back Better Act and the infrastructure package together this week.

“Our coalition of advocacy groups represents a wide array of issue areas from across the political spectrum, and we all stand united behind President Biden’s agenda,” said Zac Petkanas, senior advisor to Invest in America Action. “The impact of the historic investments in the Build Back Better Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will be felt in every corner of the country by creating millions of good-paying jobs, lowering costs, and cutting taxes for families. Congress must pass both these life-changing bills together this week.”

About Invest in America

The operation consists of two components: Invest in America, the charitable and public education arm, which is a fiscally sponsored project of Economic Security Project funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and Economic Security Project co-chair Chris Hughes; and Invest in America Action, the advocacy and social welfare arm, which is a fiscally sponsored project of Economic Security Project Action funded by Chris Hughes and the Omidyar Network.
