RAC-CA New 2020 Policy Agenda to Address the COVID-19 Pandemic
April 1, 2020
The health and economic crises caused by the coronavirus call us to respond together from our Jewish values and tradition to support Californians who are suffering – both inside and outside our Reform congregations and communities. Events are moving quickly. The agenda below may change as the political situation changes.
Protect the homeless as well as renters and homeowners at risk of losing their homes, regardless of immigration status.
Criminal Justice Reform:
Protect incarcerated people who are at increased risk of infection and prevent prisons from becoming an ongoing source of the virus.
Provide health care to all immigrants and protect them from immigration enforcement actions that threaten their health.
Provide health care to everyone who needs it
Provide assistance to employers and employees to stem unemployment and alleviate the effects of joblessness, regardless of immigration status.
For the most recent top priority within this Agenda, please go to the RAC-CA Group in The Tent at RAC.org/CAlegAgenda. For access or help with the Tent, contact Lee Winkelman at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rabbi Julie Saxe-Taller at email@example.com.
