COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@CraigSilverman: hey Craig, Twitter lies to millions of their users via ghosting. It's truly despicable behavior. Not only does Twitter ghost replies to Trump officials (many from libs), they also ghost replies from dissenters to foreign leaders. When will you call them on it?
