We Are A Coalition Of Lawyers, Civil And Human Rights Organizations, Faith Leaders, Healthcare Professionals, Community Members, And Elected Officials Working To Save The Lives Of Georgia’s Citizens Who Will Face Life Threatening Consequences As A Result Of Governor Kemp’s Reopening Of Georgia.
The Governor Needs to Meet with Coalition Leaders Immediately
Georgia Coalition 2 Save Lives is asking for an emergency meeting with Gov. Brian Kemp to discuss ways to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among people of color, the elderly and the incarcerated, and to prevent a second wave of the disease that has killed more than 1,300 Georgians.
New data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that African Americans make up 83% of Georgians who have been hospitalized with COVID-19.
Our coalition represents dozens of local, regional and national interests – ranging from legal to religious, medical and civic organizations – has sent a letter to Kemp Wednesday requesting a meeting on or before May 12.
