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.
