  • NAVIGATING VIRUSES FOR THE HOLIDAYSThe wonderful blog Your Local Epidemiologist has published a guide to minimizing sickness and maximizing family & friends time in this fall/ winter season of increasing COVID-19 and winter virus infections.  Let’s read the guide and take its recommendations to heart so we can keep ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities safer this holiday season.
    The ATF has proposed a new rule that would strengthen the definition of “engaging in the business as a dealer in firearms” so that between 24,500 and 328,000 sellers would have to register for a federal license – and thus be required to run background checks. This would be the broadest expansion of firearms background checks in decades, a giant step towards closing the online and gun show loopholes. The ATF is seeking public comment on the proposed rule until December 7th. Let’s make sure we make our voices heard in support of this crucial measure here. We can also use this tool from Everytown for Gun Safety.

    Call center workers at Maximus, the federal government’s largest call center contractor, held a one-day strike on November 9th demanding a living wage, affordable health care, longer break times and the right to organize. Maximus workers handle millions of Obamacare, Medicare and CDC info line calls, but are facing trouble accessing health care for themselves. The workers are calling for Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra to investigate Maximus for its racial disparities and to ensure it is a responsible federal contractor, and to require Maximus to pay $25/hour and provide employees with adequate health benefits. We can use this tool to contact Becerra and Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure in support of the workers here. We can also reach the HHS comment line at 202-205-5445.
