Individuals, communities and institutions are grappling with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This crisis exposes the fractures of our economic, social and political system and underlying inequalities. While the outbreak has a widespread impact, for some groups the situation furthers their vulnerabilities and limitations.
It is in this moment of heightened fear and concern, civil and human rights advocates must stand with those who are particularly harmed by the results of the crisis because of their identity or status. By fighting collectively to ensure no one is left without the help they need to live in dignity and safety, we can develop stronger communities.
On this page, you will find a list of resources, campaigns, and actions to help support your families and communities as we all work to respond to this moment. Please also review this fact sheet of key provisions in the recently introduced CARE Act and its impacts on working people.
