Lydia Babino started this petition to United States of America

I do not qualify for any form of stimulus payments, and if you are reading this, most likely you or someone you know does not qualify. Like some of the millions of US citizens who do not qualify, I was claimed as a dependent on someone’s 2019 tax forms. Because we are between the ages of 17 and 24 we are not eligible for a $1200 stimulus check. We are also not 16 and under, so we do not qualify for the $500 payment parents would receive if we were.

Since October of 2019 I have been entirely independent. I live in my own place with 3 roommates and I have 6 animals to take care of. Due to COVID-19 I have lost my job, I am lucky because my job loss is only temporary. I am lucky and have an amazing Landlord who is providing me rent forgiveness during this time in exchange for some yard work. I am lucky I did not have to move out of a college dorm room with hours notice not knowing when I’d be able to get back. 

I know there are many people like me but in much worse situations. This is for them, this is for the person who has had to travel 3 hours to pack up a dorm room in the same amount of time. This is for the person with out rent forgiveness being told to “Figure it out”. This is for the person whose job loss is NOT temporary. This is for those you [The US Government] forgot!

With this petition we demand you rethink about the dignity you have taken away from us. With this petition we demand we qualify for stimulus if any kind. We are here, we are the future, the economy is ours for the making.
