In Case You Missed It:
COVID-19 is REAL

Covid19 Third Wave: Protect Black Families

Black Americans make up 13% of the population and approximately 21%, or about 45,000, of the more than 215,000 coronavirus deaths. As America enters what could be the third wave, the pandemic has proven to be the worst health crisis in modern history, and the inadequate response by Donald Trump and his administration has resulted in devastating health and economic ramifications for the Black community. Last month the unemployment rate for Black women was 11.1%, well above the 6.9% unemployment among white women. And about 60% of Black households have experienced serious financial problems during the pandemic. Trump ordered his administration to stop negotiations on stimulus relief and continues to endanger Americans with his rallies and lies. Please stay vigilant. Wear a mask, social distance, go to the doctor if you’re feeling ill, and listen to medical professionals to protect yourself and your family.

Supreme Court Hearings and What’s at Stake for Black Women

Last week, Senate Republicans are holding rushed and unsafe committee hearings to push through the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, who could be a deciding vote to take health care away from millions of Americans and overturn Roe v. Wade. This nomination risks Americans’ health care and protections for people with preexisting conditions; women’s right to reproductive health care guaranteed by Roe v. Wade; the right to vote; the right to clean air and clean water; the right to equal pay for equal work; workers’ right to collectively bargain; and Dreamers’ ability to avoid deportation. 

The majority of Americans believe the winner of this year’s election should select Justice Ginsburg’s replacement. Call your senators today and say that you do not support this nomination. And cast your ballot early to help elect leaders that will protect our health care.
