Enact moratoriums on evictions, foreclosures, and utility shut offs
Adopt equitable policies for COVID-19 testing
Secure paid leave
Close toxic hotspots such as oil drilling sites near homes that exacerbate respiratory health challenges

Protect the rights of our vulnerable service workers
About The Host Organization
When Liberty Hill began in 1976, it was a daring new foundation that turned philanthropy on its head. Today it is a national leader in social justice. Organizing and advocacy powered by Liberty Hill has changed national policies, launched social change movements, transformed neighborhoods, and nurtured hundreds of community leaders who respond to the experience of injustice by fighting for their rights.
