Our campaign provides resources for you to deal with the unfolding coronavirus outbreak and our social and political response to it. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call or email.
Many people also want to help — see below resources for our “How Can I Help” section.
State and local governments should be providing immediate help to people in this crisis. Massachusetts should enact:
- A moratorium on all evictions (as Santa Monica has done), all foreclosures, and all utility cutoffs.
- Medicare for All (Spain has nationalized private hospitals in response).
- Pressure our national government to waive/delay student loan payments until this crisis is over.
How Can I Help?
As we’ve called through lists of voters to check in on everyone and provide people with resources, we’ve found that many people would like to help. Here are some of the ways you can help.
