Everyone deserves to be financially supported and feel safe at home during this time.”
In a followup post, Grande pointed out the urgency of the crisis and the financial impact of the pandemic. “Please support h.r.6201 which has passed the house,” she tweeted. “This bill will provide people w necessary financial support in terms of paid sick leave / unemployment due to corona virus / isolation / prevention! Please contact your senate to support the passing of this bill ! Urgently.”
