Protect everyone now.

Protect Everyone Now

SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLKIT


Introduction

The coronavirus has now affected every state in the country, and the number of confirmed cases is still growing. If we’re going to save lives and also stave off economic disaster, we all need to do our part to protect everyone, including people currently incarcerated in our jails, prisons, immigration detention facilities and refugee camps, as they are some of the populations most vulnerable in the pandemic. Further, we all need to practice, whenever possible, social distancing and good hygiene.

But we also need urgent action from the Federal government. Call Congress and tell them they must pass legislation to:

  • Urge unprecedented public health resources, starting with universal free coronavirus tests and health care coverage they need at no cost. This coverage must be extended to vulnerable populations throughout our society, such as undocumented immigrants and people who are incarcerated. We also need to ensure health care workers on the front lines of this crisis have the resources and equipment they need.

  • Send a check to everyone across the country for a few thousand dollars, each month, and keep doing it until this crisis is behind us. Don’t means test; do it for all, right now.

  • Provide zero-interest loan assistance to any small business who needs it to keep people working and on payroll. This means making sure restaurants, home health care providers — and not just big companies — can keep people paid and stay afloat.

  • Expand unemployment insurance and safety net programs and benefits.  This should include plans and emergency funds to cover child care and medical care, and specific support for those at the frontlines of this crisis.

  • Release people from the public health disaster that are jails, detention centers, and prisons. Federal, state, and local officials should be looking for every opportunity to dramatically reduce incarcerated populations, who are at some of the highest risk.

  • Automatically extend or renew visas or immigration benefits that are set to renew before the end of 2020, including DACA.

  • Provide immediate relief from debt collections, immigration enforcement, and eviction.

2. Round-up of tools shared by Indivisible.

  1. #PeopleOverProfits Resource Hub: Today, we launched our comprehensive People Over Profits Coronavirus Hub at https://peopleoverprofits.indivisible.org

  2. Explainers, Call Scripts, and More: We have our resource with our priorities and asks on the economic stimulus here, including a call script for senators, a call script for representatives, a letter to the editor tool, and an email your member of Congress tool.

  3. Separately, we have a standalone resource on the democracy/voting asks we have for folks here + a script to call senators.

  4. Soapboxx: On the social side, we’re continuing to use #PeopleOverProfits and are asking folks to record videos using Soapboxx to demand Congress prioritizes a people-first coronavirus response and urge their friends and family to get involved. If anyone else is interested in using this tool, I can create a template without a logo on the video. Next week, we’re going to be pushing this out more heavily. We’d love to talk more about efforts next week on things like tweetstorms and organized online days of action.

  5. Mutual Aid: On the #PeopleOverProfits hub, you’ll notice a map of mutual aid efforts happening across the country – this is a map being coordinated and made possible by the good folks at Town Hall Project. If you’re interested in talking to them about it, the best contact is nwilliams@townhallproject.com

  6. Organizing Virtually: You’ll also notice on the hub, we’ve got several of our own (and others!) resources on organizing virtually in the time of coronavirus, including resources on building community, holding zoom calls, and more. We’re keeping a running doc of resources, trainings, and tools. If you have something that you think would be a great addition to this resource, please email sara@indivisible.org

  1. There also needs to be some type of expansion of homeless shelters. I just read in the Idaho Statesman paper that Boise [Garden City] is opening up an unused hotel that has 30 rooms to homeless people.
    It is estimated that a 142,000 Hoosiers will lose their jobs in three months. These are drastic times and people must be helped.

    Amid coronavirus, Riverside Hotel fills 30 rooms with homeless families, medically vulnerable
    MARCH 21, 2020
    During a time of uncertainty for Boise’s homeless people, some have found comfort in the generosity of a local hotel.
    Garden City’s Riverside Hotel has 30 rooms now occupied by families with children and medically susceptible people from Interfaith Sanctuary, one of Boise’s homeless shelters. The shelter’s executive director, Jodi Peterson-Stigers, said the hotel’s willingness to take in those especially in need has given them a greater sense of security at a time when the possibility of catching COVID-19 looms.

    She also said Thursday night was the first time in the coronovirus pandemic that she’s slept knowing that those families and medically fragile people were safer from the virus’s spread…Peterson-Stigers said she hopes to add food services at the hotel as well…

    Meanwhile, Interfaith Sanctuary has taken additional measures for those in their care, Peterson-Stigers said.

    The shelter now takes people’s temperatures before they are allowed into the main areas of the shelter at 1620 W. River St. Anyone whose temperature exceeds 100.4 will be taken to a separate area of the building for additional tests.

    Peterson-Stigers said that the shelter has been preparing a protocol to prevent the spreading of coronavirus if one of its residents tests positive…
