Do not place your trust in what you read from random people online, but instead in medical professionals and government agencies.
The world needs the Church right now. The rains of COVID-19 and economic fallout are pouring down on the earth, but the focus of the story should be on the rainbow that will appear. We don't know how long this will last, but the rainbow is on the horizon. God's love and promise are there to guide us through.
This week, the Ohio General Assembly is expected to convene to pass their first state level emergency response bills. We need the legislature to pass legislation that will invest in resources, remove bureaucratic barriers to services, and expand access and protections for Ohioans struggling to make ends meet.
Specifically we are asking the Ohio Legislature to:
- Make sure Ohioans have access to their daily bread by investing in $25 million into Ohio's food bank network.
- Create healthy living environments with a 60 day freeze on evictions and investments in rental assistance.
- Support those who can't work by expanding unemployment compensation.
- Help people to stay healthy by expanding Medicaid to 200% of the federal poverty level.
