It’s so important that we turn toward each other at this time. There’s a lot we don’t know, but we do know that we are in this together. Will you join us on Saturday at 2pm for the In This Together Virtual Mass Meeting? Register here.
Our top priorities right now are to do all we can to slow the spread of the virus and to support each other. But we also know that these things are not enough. We feel a responsibility to examine, and ultimately to change, the broken systems that are failing to keep us safe and secure. In this moment we are seeing plainly how unprepared our government is to navigate a public health crisis and to effectively protect and support its people. Millions of lives are now at greater risk because of failure to prepare, bad policy choices, and contradictory and confusing messages from authorities. It feels like no one is at the helm.
We’ve been saying for a long time that it’s ‘up to us’ to get ourselves organized into a force that can bring about the kind of changes we know we need. That’s as true today as ever.
This moment has the potential to put us in deeper touch with what really matters. We’re going to be present with each other as we chart a course to navigate this crisis together. We might not be able to be together in person right now, but each of us has a part to play.
Can you join us Saturday for the In This Together Virtual Mass Meeting?
Now is the time for us to unite across our differences and make policy choices that help everyday working people—not just the richest 1% and a handful of corporations. As individuals, we can wash our hands, avoid unnecessary physical contact, and check in on our friends and neighbors—all important measures. The next step is what we do together: as an organized force, we can demand our local, state, and national governments do everything possible to protect everyone’s health and well-being, no exceptions.
