Our hearts go out to the families of people who have died from COVID-19 and to those who are experiencing the terrible effects of the virus. We honor the heroic efforts of our health care workers and first responders who put their own lives on the line for us daily.
COVID-19 does not discriminate. But its impact strikes hardest in communities of color. We have failed as a society to act on this knowledge and we HAVE to do better as we rebuild.
All political leaders MUST guarantee equitably distributed aid, and prioritize accessible health care and financial resources for those most in need in our community.
End the backroom deals.
