Teens Advocate for inclusion in Stimulus Packages
Virginia teens spoke with Del. Price at a recent Teen Zoom Round Table and voiced concern over federal COVID-19 economic responses excluding 17 year olds. The CARES Act gave families $500 for dependent children "under 17". The teens have started a petition and movement for this to be fixed by paying families $500 for each 17 year old dependent child and including 17 year olds in all future federal COVID-19 responses. To join the #500For17 movement, visit bit.ly/500For17, read the petition, sign, and share! Help them fight for fairness in the economic impact payments.
