Triangle ADOS Shares White House Petition and Submitted a Proposal for Concerned Black American Citizens (CBAC)
Nationwide — Triangle ADOS in collaboration with ADOS CT, ADOS NE, Twin Cities ADOS, Rocky Mount ADOS, and Friends of ADOS TV have co-sponsored a petition for COVID-19 relief specific for ADOS.
The proposal, submitted by Concerned Black American Citizens (CBAC) on May 4th, calls for the immediate release of $2.4 trillion in stimulus funding to provide: $6,000 per month, a 60% housing incentive, and federal employee health insurance to Black Americans who have suffered the highest disparities in death.
Justification for this proposal is due to the high percentage (35.7%) of Black Americans that have died from COVID-19 compared to the percent (13%) of Black Americans represented in the US Population.
We have reason to believe that disparities of the COVID-19 deaths among Black Americans are due to an overrepresentation in service related jobs, now termed ‘essential’ work and environmental racism,” says Dr. LaTosha Gibson, Spokesperson for Triangle ADOS.
