Ask Legislators to Support Nonprofits During COVID-19

We are working with partners to urge elected officials to support nonprofit organizations on the front line of community service in this pandemic response. These services are more important than ever, as disruptions in service delivery threaten to further exacerbate disparities in life outcomes among people of color, those with low incomes and seniors.
We invite you to endorse our letters to the Governor’s office and legislative leaders. See who has endorsed.
