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.

.@ReddingHomeless: @EOckerman, VICE, & MSM in general push the very NeoLiberal/Koch policies (loose borders, free trade, globalism) that have led to many becoming homeless. You need to help fight or contain anti-American NeoLiberal policies as a first step.
