Tell Congress: People Experiencing Homelessness Need Coronavirus Support Now.
You may have received an email this morning from our partners at True Colors United about actions we need to take with our members of congress to support young people. We are including their message below and are also asking you to act.
I hope this email finds you safe and well. As Congress works to provide an emergency spending bill to aid communities during the coronavirus pandemic, they need to help an important population: people experiencing homelessness, including youth and young adults.
Right now, the emergency supplemental spending bill includes NOTHING for people experiencing homelessness, a population that is at particular risk of health crises.
We must act quickly. Key decisions about what’s in the bill will be made within the next 48 hours.
