OUTRAGE! COVID-19 testing Denied to Harlem Residents
Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement, Inc (HCCI) and Assemblyman Al Taylor are working to bring COVID-19 mobile testing to Harlem's Bradhurst neighborhood. Areas located above 144th Street have been totally neglected and have zero testing sites! Meanwhile, some New York City communities have received 2-3 times the testing supplies, while other communities (like Bradhurst) have received nothing. This is an outrage!
Harlem's houses of worship are being rampaged by the COVID-19 virus, as Harlem residents continue to die at a disproportionately higher rate than other communities. HCCI has access to the mobile testing vans through community partnerships. We have secured medical personnel volunteers to conduct the test. Now, we just need to have the testing supplies and equipment allocated to start the testing process.
We need your assistance to protect our community residents and reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Harlem. Please sign our petition if you believe that EVERYONE should have access to COVID-19 testing.
