We are in the midst of an unfolding public health crisis due to the coronavirus. And we at the Kairos Center know that this crisis results from a deeper, much longer-term crisis — that of poverty and inequality and of a society that despises the poor and ignores the needs of the 140 million poor and low-income people in this country.

Check here for updates and analysis from the Kairos Center and our network on this continuing situation, including demands from organizations and movements on the frontlines of the poor organizing the poor.
