1. TRUTH: Speak honestly about the threat posed by this pandemic, including that many of us will contract the virus and that without a commitment to equity those working at low-wage jobs and living in already neglected urban and rural communities will be most at-risk of widespread sickness and death.
2. TEST: Make free testing widely available to all, regardless of immigration status, prioritizing those who are most vulnerable by testing through home visits, at community health centers and neighborhood sites and in places where people are incarcerated and detained, and by reporting on racial and economic disparities in who gets tested.
3. TREAT: Release all federal resources needed to get health workers at safety-net hospitals that serve the most vulnerable communities enough personal protective equipment, ventilators, masks, more hospital beds, and other resources to treat the wave of at-risk patients that are on the way
4. SUPPORT: Make sure that vulnerable families are able to protect themselves, care for their loved-ones, and weather financial hardship by expanding Medicaid and food stamps, requiring paid sick and family leave at all firms for all workers, extending unemployment insurance, ending ICE raids, releasing as many people as possible from jail, prison and detention, and making free lunches available to eligible children whose schools are closed.
