The National Urban League applauds Senator Booker and Representative Kelly on the introduction of the Community Solutions for COVID-19 Act. This legislation will send resources directly to the communities most impacted by this pandemic, which are the same communities who have historically been marginalized and have suffered from deep, persistent inequities that are leading to these adverse health outcomes today. We urge Congress to quickly take up and pass this important legislation.30 May 2020
