URGE and 65 Organizations Tell Congressional Leaders to Tackle Economic and Health Disparities in COVID-19 Legislation

During the COVID-19 health crisis, it is vital that we center communities who, historically, face the greatest health and economic disparities. URGE and 65 organizations have sent a letter to Congressional leaders asking that any current and future federal legislation, including any stimulus packages, center young people, queer, trans, and nonbinary communities, people of color, and people with disabilities. Within the letter are specific policy demands that would change the material conditions of these communities and enable them to better survive this pandemic and rebuild in its aftermath.
