Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) will join today’s (August 17) national call on coronavirus, housing, and homelessness at 2:30-4:00 pm ET. Senator Merkley will discuss the state of play between the White House and Congress on the next coronavirus relief package and what advocates need to do to pressure policy makers to act and to ensure the essential housing and homelessness components in the House-passed “HEROES Act” and “Emergency Housing Protections and Relief Act of 2020” are enacted as soon as possible. We will also hear about national advocacy efforts and equitable homelessness response, get updates from the field, and more.
