Speak up for relief

Excellent article on the state of COVID-19 relief, including focusing on the human side with the story of Ariel McSpadden. (“Spokane leaders call on Congress to act as COVID-19,” by Rebecca White, Adam Shanks, and Orion Donovan-Smith, The Spokesman-Review, Nov. 18, 2020)

We can each help this relief pass by contacting our Senators and Representative, asking them to pass relief now, sharing your story or send them McSpadden’s. With homelessness and hunger rising, and spiking infections and deaths, we can’t afford to wait.
