America's Mayors, Health Care Justice, and COVID-19

Through the continuation of the Our Lives On The Line series, Health Care Voter is shining a light on the experience of some of the people hardest hit by this pandemic.

Mayors of cities across the country have been managing the spread of coronavirus with little to no support from the Trump administration and its stranglehold on federal resources.

While states and cities with special favor from the Trump administration have received more tests, ventilators, and protective equipment, countless cities and towns have been left to fend for themselves against this unprecedented global pandemic.

Join us as we hear from some of the nation’s mayors about their cities’ fights against coronavirus, and what all of us must do to hold the Trump administration accountable for putting profits and politics ahead of people’s lives.
