If you have friends who are faith workers, please keep in touch with them, make sure they are taking care of themselves and ask them what you can do for them or anyone they serve who is being affected by the virus and its consequences.
Homeless people and families are some of the most vulnerable and hardest hit by the Covid-19 virus. Please consider finding a homeless shelter near you and contact them to ask what you can do to help.
Nearly 60 million Americans are still working to keep our internet running, to deliver our groceries, to make sure we have electricity, and to care for the sick. Sadly, many employers are not giving their front-line employees masks, sterile gloves or other things they need to stay safe and healthy to benefit all of us.
Please contact your elected officials and demand they support an essential workers Bill of Rights that includes:
- Health and safety protections.
- Robust premium compensation.
- Protections for collective bargaining agreements
- Truly universal paid sick leave and family and medical leave.
- Protections for whistle blowers.
- An end to worker misclassification.
- Health care security.
- Support for childcare.
- Treat workers as experts.
- Hold corporations accountable for meeting their responsibilities.
Please consider buying meals for hospital workers and also helping local restaurant workers by donating to Off Their Plate, a volunteer run organization that raises money to buy and deliver meals for hospital workers from local restaurants who commit that at least 50% of the cost of the meal will go to their workers. Off Their Plate is currently operating in Boston, NYC, LA, SF and Pittsburgh.
Millions of families cannot afford to buy food today. Please consider donating to your local food bank.
Call, text or facetime every healthcare worker you know and let them know I’ve got their back.
