North Dakota Advocacy Organizations Launch COVID-19 Website
Posted 4/10/20 (Fri)
North Dakota Women's Network has joined a coalition of other ND advocacy groups to launch NDcovidresponse.org, a website with resources and policy visions created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis. The website provides resources for all North Dakotans regarding:
• emergency assistance for working families
• worker safety
• housing and utilities
• food security
• healthcare access
• state government resources
The website also includes policy demands, including guaranteed wages for workers most impacted by the pandemic, paid family leave, a moratorium on evictions and utility shutoffs, and hazard pay for frontline workers. This people-centered response is not only to the COVID-19 crisis, but addresses policy changes that may result from the crisis.
We are living in a difficult and strange time. How we get through this crisis depends on how we work together and how we look out for one another by standing united as a community.
To serve all North Dakotans, these organizations have joined together to keep our community connected during this crisis:
AFL-CIO, Indivisible, ND Native Vote, ND United, Farmers Union, ACLU, Creating a Hunger Free ND, ND Human Rights Coalition, ND Women's Network, ND Community Action Partnership, Dakota Resource Council, LSSND, ND Nurses Association, High Plains Fair Housing, FM Coalition to End Homelessness, Cass Clay Food Commission, Prairie Action ND.
