Today I was honored to join with Caity Maple of Sacramento SOUP and Sister Libby Fernandez of Mercy Pedalers to call for immediate congressional action to address the emergency unfolding on Sacramento city streets.
As our unhoused neighbors face down freezing weather, rain, and COVID-19 they are largely being forced to do it alone, without the full safety net that already fails to provide full services to all who need it.
The continued failure by Congress to act to address these issues has deadly consequences. While they wring their hands we are losing people in our community daily, with the potential to see a surge is essential programs like Project Roomkey are forced to shut down.

Call your member of congress at 202-224-2131 to tell them how you feel.
