Witness Wednesdays: Voices of the Unemployed -- Video Library
More than 3 million hard-working Americans have been cut off of emergency unemployment compensation since the program was allowed to expire on Dec. 28, 2013. Extended unemployment benefits help people pay their rent, utility bills, and transportation while they seek new work. In the past, both Republicans and Democrats have helped the unemployed get back on their feet. It's time for us to come together again and support our friends and neighbors.
This video library features archived footage from each of the seven Witness Wednesdays events. For more information and tools you can use to take action, please visit www.witnesswednesdays.org.
