Chamber Advocates for Business Community Amidst COVID-19 Unprecedented Disruption

With so much disruption and turmoil surrounding COVID-19, the Chamber traveled to Washington, D.C. this week to advocate for policies that could bring relief to businesses and workers during this time. In the recent ACCESS Washington, D.C. trip, the timing could not have been better. We were able to provide our federal policymakers and representatives firsthand information about the impacts of the coronavirus on our regional businesses. We were also able to share how the situation has disrupted the amount of goods shipped through our ports, tourism and businesses of all sizes. Being in D.C. at this pivotal time ensured that we were able to advocate for businesses in the region and advise what will be needed to weather through this trying time. Sen. Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Maxine Waters were just some of the high-profile elected officials our delegation met with to advocate for Southern California businesses.
