“When this Covid-19 crisis is finally over, what will happen to the folks who had been living on the street or in shelters, and have now been moved temporarily into hotels?”
We, as a community of faith, care about these situations and the people involved. There is so much that each of us can achieve by something as simple as writing a letter. We invite you to join us in making our voices heard by writing to politicians.
We’ve made letter writing easy for you!
