Action Alert! Extend the James Zadroga Act to Provide Healthcare to 9/11 Heroes

The September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is facing a lack of funding that will mean many responders and survivors will not get the full compensation they were expecting and deserve. The VCF is providing desperately needed financial help to thousands of injured and ill 9/11 responders and survivors who live in every state.

Worse still, if Congress does not act, the VCF is set to close its doors at the end of 2020 - just as thousands more who need help are being diagnosed with 9/11 related cancers.

We need to take action now to do something about this. Call your Member of Congress now and urge them to join in co-sponsoring  the bipartisan legislation, “Never Forget the Heroes: Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act,” that would fill any shortfalls in funding for the VCF and would permanently authorize the Fund to remain open for years to come.

The Congressional switchboard number is 202-224-3121.
