NEW VIDEO: The Grim Reality of Trump’s War On Health Care and Botched Coronavirus Response for African Americans

By June 19, 2020No Comments

African American communities have borne the brunt of the coronavirus crisis and will continue to suffer as a result of the administration’s botched effort to contain its spread. This new video from Protect Our Care makes clear just how devastating the economic and public health aspects of this crisis have been for African Americans who have lost jobs, been hospitalized and died at a disproportionately higher rate than white Americans. This week, Protect Our Care released a new report detailing how African Americans have suffered the brunt of the coronavirus and held a press call with Senators Durbin (D-IL) and Duckworth (D-IL) and Representative Robin Kelly (D-IL-02) to discuss the glaring racial disparities in the African American community caused by Trump’s actions to sabotage health care and his failure to contain the coronavirus. 

This new video brings into focus the grim reality of how Trump’s war on health care has hurt and will continue to hurt African Americans.
