Urge the EPA to Extend Comment Periods for Rulemaking During COVID Crisis

March 31, 2020

As Americans—including doctors, researchers, and public health experts—respond to the global coronavirus pandemic, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is moving forward hastily with a number of environmental and public health rules, including ones
that would jeopardize public and environmental health. We ask that you join us in urging the EPA to extend their public comment periods by at least 45 days beyond the end of the declared national emergency, including comment periods which closed between March
13th to present, as well as those that are still open. Doing so will ensure that all Americans have an opportunity to participate in the rulemaking process, as the Administrative Procedures Act requires. 

COSPONSOR H.R. 6398: Get Urgently Needed Medical Equipment to Health Care Workers Fighting COVID-19

March 31, 2020

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases have exceeded 400,000 across the world and 50,000 in the United States. Unfortunately, the virus is continuing to spread rapidly through
our communities and is projected to soon overwhelm our health care system. Health care providers are being forced to reuse the personal protective equipment (PPE) intended to prevent the spread of disease, ventilator supplies are a fraction of what experts
are pleading for, and testing components are in such short supply that only critically ill individuals can receive the COVID-19 test. The American people and our heroic frontline health care providers are desperate for the resources they need to prevent, identify,
and treat COVID-19 cases in order to minimize loss of life.

JOIN LETTER TO TRUMP CONDEMNING ANTI-ASIAN DISCRIMINATION AND VIOLENCE LINKED TO COVID-19

March 31, 2020

I invite you to join me in sending a letter to President Trump demanding that he immediately condemn his use of the term “Chinese virus” and fully investigate all hate crimes against Asian Americans which have increased dramatically throughout the course
of this pandemic. Over 650 reports were made last week alone, with Asian Americans documenting instances of being physically assaulted and verbally harassed for being unfairly associated with the spread of COVID-19.

We invite you to cosponsor bipartisan legislation to reauthorize the CW Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program (Program) and the National Cord Blood Inventory program (NCBI). These programs save lives by connecting patients with otherwise fatal blood cancers
or blood disorders to unrelated donors across the world. Authorization for the Program and NCBI expires at the end of Fiscal Year 2020. The
Timely ReAuthorization of Necessary Stem-cell Programs Lends Access to Needed Therapies Act of 2019 (TRANSPLANT Act) would allow for continued operation and funding through 2025 without interruption.

Compel Trump to Fully Invoke DPA

March 31, 2020

The Trump administration has told the American people on several occasions that the administration has already begun the process of invoking the Defense Production Act (DPA), but there has been no meaningful action taken —leaving hospital and health care
workers on the front lines without the proper gear, and fighting against each other in a bidding war for supplies.

Speak Out Against China’s Crimes Against Humanity!

March 31, 2020

We invite you to join us in writing to the Director of National Intelligence to emphasize the importance of the NDAA Section 5512 Report on Repression of Ethnic Muslim Minorities in the Xinjiang Region of the People’s Republic of China. This report is the
best chance for the U.S. government to expose China’s crimes and raise public awareness about China’s horrific campaign.
