From our friends at the Coalition on Human Needs:
The Senate will vote tonight (Monday) on final passage of the bill to restore unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless - finally!
Please don't leave anything to chance: tell your Senators to vote yes.

As of April 5, more than 2 million unemployed workers have lost jobless benefits because Congress hasn’t acted.
Where things stand:
What to do: click here, to send emails to your Senators and Representative.
Contact your Rep. and tell him/her to urge Speaker John Boehner to bring up the Senate bill to restore Unemployment Compensation for a House vote ASAP.
Your representative needs a different message. Speaker Boehner has refused so far to bring a bill to the floor to restore unemployment insurance. So every House member must be urged to tell the Speaker to bring the Senate bill to the floor and to vote for its passage.
Each week since EUC was allowed to expire, another 72,000 workers and their families have been cut off. Through April 5, more than 2.3 million people have been denied assistance. More than $5 billion in benefits has been lost to families and communities. There are still not enough jobs and too many out of work for more than six months.
*Senator Cruz (R-TX) did not vote, so he has been omitted from the list. But please be encouraged to contact him to urge a yes vote.
