We know many people are struggling to deal with the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic. CUFA's Coronavirus Response Platform calls for statewide moratoriums on evictions, foreclosures and utility shutoffs. CUFA is calling for more people to get the help they need when our wastewater infrastructure fails. Let's imagine together: a world where we work to dismantle racist policies that have made it clear during this pandemic that we value money over people's lives.
Here are the top 3 actions you can take this week:
- Read and sign onto our CUFA Coronavirus Response Platform.
- Sign onto our Sewer Backup petition to City Council, the Mayor and Hamilton County Commissioners to tell them we need immediate improvements to the Sewer Backup Response & Prevention programs. If you have a sewer backup story, make sure to include that in your comments when you sign on. You can even upload a picture!
- Explore the articles in this The Forge special issue on The Rise and Fall of Racial Capitalism. Let us know what you think!
Just Mercy, streaming free from Warner Bros. for the month of June! From the film creators: "We believe in the power of story. Our film, Just Mercy, based on the life work of Civil Rights Attorney Bryan Stevenson, is one resource we can humbly offer to those who are interested in learning more about the systemic racism that plagues our society."
The Census is still happening! Make sure you are counted! Federal funding and how much representation we get in Congress is determined by Census results, so help CUFA spread the word about the importance of filling it out. The Census is collecting responses over the phone or online. You can fill yours out here.
