Demand Congress Fund Zika Virus Testing & Treatment in Vulnerable Communities

Congress has been slow to act in funding testing, treatment and prevention for the Zika virus. Unfortunately, minority and poverty-stricken communities are hit hardest by this and action needs to be taken.

Why is this important?

There have been a number of bills introduced and a lot of talk about the issue, but none that's gotten a passing vote. As the virus starts in on many parts of the United States, those with poor access to health care are most affected. As a Florida resident, I'm concerned for my neighbors, and myself, and want to see my leaders act to help us.
