Congress must support people most at risk for COVID-19 by expanding paid leave. Your senators and representative need to hear from YOU as they work on new legislation related to COVID-19. We need your help to ensure people with diabetes receive job protection and financial support that allows them to remain safe at home during the pandemic.

Expand Paid Leave for People with Diabetes During COVID-19
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a constituent, I urge you to expand paid family and medical leave to protect Americans who are most vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic. This would ensure that individuals at high risk for adverse complications from COVID-19 can remain safe at home during this crisis. This health crisis poses an unprecedented and disproportionate risk to the 34 million Americans living with diabetes, from both from a health and an economic perspective. And it has magnified existing financial and logistical burdens associated with diabetes care.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
