EMERGING COMMUNITY PRIORITIES FROM FLORIDA GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATIONS
We are Facing a Pandemic.
The current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is not just a public health emergency, it’s an economic crisis, and both will disproportionately impact the most vulnerable among us.
As COVID-19 continues to take its toll, we must protect our local communities as they confront and attempt to mitigate its impacts, especially healthcare workers and vulnerable populations. The response must center and support marginalized communities who are already feeling the devastating economic impact of this pandemic, especially workers who are earning low wages and are one paycheck away from crisis, including individuals with disabilities and other special needs. We are a cross section of grassroots organizations from across Florida, led by and rooted in these communities. We’ve weathered storms and natural disasters, and know all too well how our communities can be left out of preparation and recovery efforts. Read the list of demands HERE.
