California has seen over 3.4 million positive COVID cases so far. As the California Senate and Assembly prepare to make decisions on urgent budget action to address the effects of the pandemic, the Jewish Center for Justice — along with our partners at the California Work & Family Coalition — needs YOU to take action so we can get emergency paid sick days into the California budget in 2021. 📱
