Congress is working on providing the next round of critical funding for states and businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The HEROES Act, the new coronavirus relief bill introduced by House lawmakers on Tuesday May 12th, includes a provision for funds solely for the use of nonprofits like your local LGBTQ+ community center. We need you to urge the Senate to support this bill's language. Will you send a letter to your Senators? We've got a template already made here. Just add your information and hit send.
Centers everywhere are on the front lines every single day, providing life-saving programming to the LGBTQ+ community such as:
- Turning their spaces into emergency shelters for homeless youth
- Delivering hot meals to older adults who are vulnerable to coronavirus
- Offering medical and mental health services including HIV testing, pharmacy refills, support groups, and counseling
