Dear IP-Health, 

I rarely post here, but am grateful for the list, and take guidance from the posters all the time. It also represents a gathering of the small group of IP progressives around the world actually willing to made demands of Joe Biden. Do any of you have the ability to lift this up?:

Abdul El-Sayed, Jeff Sachs, and nearly 1,500 health professionals and experts <http://bit.ly/bidencovid19> are asking J Biden to adopt a truly massive People’s Pandemic Prevention Plan <https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Kj1NRP1rjZq8JhmKOm-3q80GMRV66V46LEfT__X896g/edit>. We’re demanding funds for global health, price controls and off patent global access for medicines/vaccines in the U.S. and worldwide (and not just for COVID), action on climate change and zoonotic diseases, and a permanent public health corp os 300,000 union jobs to address health disparities, and a plan to end AIDS by 2025. Groups like ACT UP, Greenpeace, CPD, and People’s Action have signed on to support, but all the actual organizing is being put together by a ragtag band of volunteer AIDS activists, protesters and busy, very stressed out doctors. We could really use a lift!

Can y’all help us promote this Town Hall? Here’s the link to register: https://bit.ly/PandemicTownHall <https://bit.ly/PandemicTownHall>
Sample social media posts and email templates are below.

Town Hall is Tuesday, 11am ET, with Prof. Jeffrey Sachs, Doctor Abdul El-Sayed and two doctors with horror stories from the COVID front lines. They will share their stories and make recommendations and critiques for COVID-4 in the Senate, as well as what we all need Joe Biden to, do come January🤞. Journalists and the public will be able to ask questions. 

Please help us! You can borrow (and improve) on the sample tweet, FB post and sample email is below my signature.
