COVID-19 and Beyond: Recover, Reopen and Rebuild by Investing in Community Health

"To recover, reopen and rebuild, we need robust investment in both human capital and technology."
#VoicesOfRealLife #CommunityHealthWorker @BrownShosh @USofCare This past week marks 100 plus days since New York City’s first confirmed case of COVID-19 - 78 days of lockdown, over 21,000 deaths and 500,000 jobs lost due to this disease.

It's about solidarity, health equity, and justice. By making a donation today, you are helping vulnerable New York families make it through COVID-19. And for every $20 donated, you will receive a commemorative AIRnyc face mask. Click here:

How Cities Can Provide Rapid Relief for Vulnerable People During the COVID-19 Crisis | Commonwealth Fund

"It should not have taken a pandemic for us to wake up to this inequity: some people safely at home with full refrigerators while others are lining up at food pantries or already dying or dead." - Shoshanah Brown, CEO, AIRnyc While we cannot end structural racism and break intergenerational cycles of poverty in the midst of this crisis, there are three interrelated efforts that every city can undertake to provide some relief to people hit hardest by COVID-19 and to establish an improved infrastructure for addressing heal...
