Nearly half of all Wisconsin jobs are from small business and hospitality and they need your help.
- Contact your elected officials and ask them for help for the small business and hospitality/tourism industry.
- Your message can be simple - share your own statistics and anecdotes about decreases in visitation, cancellations, layoffs, reduced hours, reduced room occupancy or anything else that can help communicate the impact the coronavirus is having on you.
- Be sure to tag your member of Congress—you can find their handles here.
- Want to go one step farther? Write a letter to the editor of your local media. Here’s a sample letter you can edit.
