VOTER SUPPRESSION

In 2013, our Supreme Court invalidated the preclearance provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act which protected eligible voters from discriminatory voting laws, saying there is no longer a need for the protections of this provision. Proving the Court wrong, states immediately began passing restrictive voter laws that had been judged illegal before the Courtís ruling. At least 20 states have passed new voting laws that restrict the registration of voters, the time available to cast a ballot, and the type of identification needed to do so.

POLICE MISCONDUCT

At least 10,000 civil rights complaints are filed for police misconduct each year, yet the total prevalence of this crime remains uncertain. Complaints of police brutality and abuse often arise from traffic stops and street encounters. Critics claim people of color experience the abuse of police power much more often than their peers.

CORONAVIRUS RELIEF

The Coronavirus Pandemic has thrown the world, our nation and our educational system into difficult, confusing and uncertain times. As a result, many school districts will provide academic instruction through remote or hybrid learning models for part or all of the 2020-2021 school year.

FIREARM BACKGROUND CHECKS

Most people think itís a good idea to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System has blocked more than 2 million gun purchases attempted by felons, dishonorably discharged veterans, domestic violence and stalking offenders, substance abusers, undocumented immigrants, the mentally ill and those who have renounced their citizenship. However, an estimated 40% of all gun transfers take place between private parties who are not required to perform background checks.

Disaster and Humanitarian Aid

GLOBAL COVID-19 VACCINATION

It is known that viruses constantly change through mutation and that new variants of a virus will occur over time. But epidemiologists worry these variants will sufficiently evolve to render our current vaccines ineffective. It is therefore extremely important to vaccinate all the world's nations and stop these variants. The World Health Organization is leading and coordinating the global pandemic effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect and respond to the pandemic. And for more than 20 years, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has been committed to saving millions of lives each year by providing support for global immunizations and vaccine delivery.


COVID-Solidarity Response Fund of World Health Organization

Donations COVID-Solidarity Response Fund of World Health Organization will go towards activities such as:
1.) Suppressing transmission through public health and social measures, including detecting and testing cases, tracing and quarantining contacts, shielding high-risk groups.
2.) Managing the infodemic and fighting disinformation and misinformation.
3.) Protecting the most vulnerable by building vaccine acceptance, ensuring vaccine deployment in all countries and carrying out vaccination campaigns.
4.) Reduce mortality and morbidity and save lives by ensuring quality care, training of health workforce and access to essential commodities.
5.) Accelerate equitable access to new COVID-19 tools, including vaccines, diagnostics and therapeutics in all countries.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

The Gates Foundation works to strengthen global immunization systems from a variety of approaches:
1.) Supporting the collection and analysis of vaccine-related data.
2.) Improving the measurement and evaluation of vaccination campaigns.
3.) Advocating for fully financed systems to deliver routine vaccines and effective education campaigns.
4.) Investing in research and development to improve existing vaccines
5.) Strengthening vaccine-related supply chains and logistics by improving the storage, transportation, and distribution of vaccines, particularly those that are temperature-sensitive.
