Special Note

The ORD2 Indivisible Steering Committee has begun actively forming a COVID-19 Action Team to aid any of our group who are isolated because they have been exposed to the virus. We know of at least one member in this situation who lives alone.  If you’d like to join this team please send your contact information (including telephone/text number) to contact@ord2indivisible.org.

If you have been advised to quarantine yourself and need help getting food, household supplies, medications, etc.  please email us so we can assist, contact@ord2indivisible.org. For anything that we purchase on your behalf, we will provide you with receipts for reimbursement as our volunteers are not in a position to pay for your items. Please let us know if we can help!


WE NEED TOOLS TO SAVE LIVES 


Medical professionals vow to care for everyone no matter where they live, how much money they have, the color of their skin, their religion, their citizenship status . . . but they can’t take care of patients if they don’t have the equipment to do so. Due to the Trump administration’s downplaying and delaying the response to COVID-19, the United States is on track for a medical crisis.  There is already a shortage of personal protective equipment and there will be a shortage of ventilators.  

When Trump was on a conference call with governors on Tuesday, he told them, “[R]espirators, ventilators, all of the equipment – try getting it yourselves. The Defense Department is providing some masks and ventilators. We will need more.  

Trump and his administration could use the Defense Production Act to save lives. Since they have not, we are asking Congress to step up and lead our response to the COVID-19 crisis.  They must find a way to boost the emergency production of everything the medical community needs to save lives. Our country can overcome this with the right tools.

Demand that Congress gives healthcare workers the tools they need!
