Today’s Action: Mask up and get vaccinated!

As the Delta variant surges throughout the country, we desperately need a new way to message masking up and getting vaccinated. We are far, far away from the necessary numbers to reach herd immunity and protect our most vulnerable. As our ICUs fill up, overwhelmingly with unvaccinated Americans, children who cannot get vaccinated are increasingly among the gravely ill.

We have an obligation to take all necessary precautions to slow the spread of this pandemic. And let’s be honest. It’s not that hard.

Get the free shot, put a piece of cloth over your face. You know, so you don’t accidentally kill your neighbor.

Follow the updated CDC guidelines and mask up indoors, even if you’re vaccinated. While you’re on the website, check out their recommended conversation points for talking to a loved one about getting vaccinated! 

There is still so much misinformation about masks and the vaccine. While you might be reading this already vaccinated and following updated CDC guidelines, the likelihood of you being just a few degrees of separation with someone anti-mask or anti-vax is high. If every reader sets an example by wearing their mask, or asking unvaccinated loved ones to talk to their primary care doctor about the vaccine, the chance of flattening the curve would increase exponentially.

Another COVID wave is scary, and we need all hands on deck to fight it and protect our neighbors. You can absolutely make a difference by following the science and opening constructive dialogue.

Take a few moments to review and share the updated CDC guidelines to mask up indoors, even if you’re vaccinated. Then, check out the CDC’s suggested talking points to help drive up vaccination rates!

Today’s Action: Tell President Biden to pass significant climate action in the budget reconciliation bill now!

The United Nations came out with a 3,000 page “code red” report detailing the state of global warming. It starkly outlines, in some cases, irreversible damage done to ecosystems across the globe. Climate disasters will only worsen without immediate climate action. Greece is on fire, flash flooding is putting communities under water, and infrastructures across the globe are not prepared to withstand the devastation.

Global powers, like the United States, must take action immediately to lower greenhouse gas emissions and even consider providing assistance to vulnerable countries preparing for the consequences of industrialized countries’ pollution. A good start would be to champion the quick passage of the budget reconciliation bill, with all of it’s proposed climate initiatives intact.

Write President Biden and demand he ensure significant climate action stays in the budget reconciliation bill, and push for it’s passage before it’s too late!

Our leaders must come together to ensure the United States is doing everything in its power to stop and reverse the damage to our planet from years of unchecked natural resource exploitation, and Biden must seize the moment to lead that charge.

The largest burden of this climate disaster will fall on the backs of working-class families and marginalized communities, but none of us will be spared the devastation. We need climate action now to minimize the damages and deaths that are promised by another decade of unchecked pollution.

Write Biden and tell him he must prioritize climate action and pass meaningful climate initiatives immediately! Remind him that the future of Earth depends on it.

Today’s Action: Allow low-risk federal prisoners to remain on home detention!

Since the beginning of high COVID-19 transmission in America over a year ago, thousands of Federal prisoners have returned home to serve their sentences on home detention. Due to the contagion levels of prisons in tandem with prison overcrowding, it made sense for the most vulnerable of prisoners to serve time elsewhere. These prisoners have reconnected with their families, have jobs, and are held to strict conduct… but now, they might have to return back to federal prison.

The Biden Administration broke silence on the issue to announce that the federal prisoners who have been reintegrating into society on home detention would be forced to return back to prison one month after the end of the declared state of emergency. While it isn’t known when this could end, discussions on prison overcrowding needs to begin now.

Write President Biden and tell him that with the uncertainty of new variants, the safe thing to do is to keep reintegrated prisoners on home detention for the rest of their sentence!

Pre-pandemic, nine state prisons and the Federal Bureau of Prisons were operating at 100% capacity or more. When you consider the pandemic, social distancing was not an option.

The pandemic aside, our prisons are way too full. Overcrowding in prisons raises the rates of suicides, violence, poor healthcare, less visitations, less educational and rehabilitation opportunities… It’s incredibly inhumane, and the pandemic makes it all the more deadly. Decarceration has been highly suggested by health officials in order to slow the spread.

We need healthy and rehabilitative prisons that treat prisoners like people, not ones that pack in as many prisoners as possible to benefit from exploitative practices such as prison labor. 

Write President Biden and demand that reintegrated prisoners on home detention for the remainder of their sentences in order to combat prison overcrowding!

Today’s Action: Pass the Raise the Wage Act!

It’s been 12 years since the last minimum wage increase, while the cost of living continues to increase. Since 1978, the average worker has seen their pay go up by 12% while CEO salaries have increased a massive 940%. Meanwhile, taxes for the wealthy have plummeted, corporate profits have soared, and income inequality has shattered records.

It is unconscionable for people to work full-time in the richest country in the history of the world and be forced to live in poverty. The Raise the Wage Act would ensure that by 2025, the legal minimum wage across the nation is no less than $15 — which is a good start, and a potential lifeline for struggling workers across the Nation.

Call or email your members of Congress and tell them to support the Raise the Wage Act. If they’ve already co-sponsored, tell them thank you and to keep fighting for a federally mandated liveable wage!

Corporations and Republican politicians would have you believe this is an economic necessity rather than pure greed. Look at Chipotle, which took the important step of paying all its workers at least $15 per hour, only to raise prices and blame the increase on the higher salaries of its lowest paid workers — ignoring the fact that it simultaneously increased its CEO salary by $24 million. And in the two years since, Chipotle stock has more than doubled.

So yes, corporations can afford to raise the minimum wage, and America cannot afford to wait.

Call or email your members of Congress and tell them our communities need the Raise the Wage Act. If they’ve already co-sponsored, tell them thank you — and remind them that millions of Americans are depending on them to get this done.

Today’s Action: Let’s talk about vaccinations!

As the Delta variant surges throughout the country, we desperately need a new way to message the vaccination. We are far, far away from the necessary numbers to reach herd immunity and protect our most vulnerable. Major events like the music festivals Rolling Loud in Miami and Lollapalooza in Chicago still convened the past two weeks with hundreds of thousands of attendees, with performers and concert-goers alike testing positive as they return to their home states.

There is still so much misinformation about the vaccine. While many reading this might already be vaccinated, it’s likely that they also have friends and family who are more apprehensive. So, how can we continue to do our part to end this pandemic?

Without judgement and using trusted methods listed below, talk to your friends and family about the vaccine! You could play a pivotal role in their path to vaccination.

Be empathetic! The CDC recommends open-ended questions to better understand individual perspectives and concerns. When encouraging them to be humble, exhibit humility yourself — they aren’t expert, but neither are most of us, which is why we need to listen to those who are. Ask them about their trusted sources of information, encourage them to talk to their personal doctor, and don’t judge.

Helping a loved one or neighbor find their reason to get vaccinated isn’t a “gotcha” moment — it’s a small act of service, and a way to keep doing your part to end the global pandemic.

COVID-19 is a public health crisis that requires all hands on deck, and that’s even more evident by the emergence of the Delta variant in response to low vaccination rates.
