We are the contractors, freelancers, small business-owners and side-giggers who keep this economy moving. The millions of people across the country who choose to work for ourselves.
We demand dignity, respect, and equal protection for the rights and rewards of self-employment.
We expect equal access to federal and state funding for COVID-19 recovery for independent contractors, small businesses, and minority entrepreneurs.
We need paid leave and unemployment protections through permanent, portable benefits that do not limit our independence or choice of work.
We want the right to work for ourselves.
