The Filipinx/a/o COVID-19 Resource and Response task force is openly accepting signatures (individuals or organizations) to endorse a letter for the COVID-19 Advisory Board of the Biden-Harris Administration to call for disaggregated data and resources for the Filipinx/a/o community who are impacted by the pandemic. In summary, the letter calls to action:
1) A transparent, publicly-available data collection and dissemination process regarding the disaggregated ethnicities of COVID-19 cases and deaths
2) Prioritization of Filipinx, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and immigrant communities, along with household members of health care workers in the vaccine allocation process, and
3) Consideration of representation from the Filipinx community in the federal public health planning for the COVID-19 response, given their disproportionate roles in health care.
