America is experiencing a public health crisis. COVID-19 affects and will affect poor and working class community members the most. Rather than prioritizing public money on corporate bailouts, we can stand united with frontline communities to ensure our collective well-being through this crisis and rewrite the rules to build a healthier and stronger country for generations to come.
This crisis illuminates the need for a robust public sector that can guarantee housing as a right: a Homes Guarantee. Watch CUFA and People's Action discuss the national Homes Guarantee campaign and how it impacts our local work on Housing issues.
