I would like to know for those who are unemployed like myself — what are our options? It’s not fair that we suddenly can’t pay our bills to no fault of our own. Is the government going to stop evictions? What about other bills? This truly isn’t fair. I haven’t worked in weeks.

Black Churches are Essential

One thing people aren’t talking about is how this coronavirus is going to affect Black churches. Everyone’s talking about small businesses but the church has bills, too. And believe it or not, the majority of churches are struggling to keep the lights on like anyone else. Save our churches!
