The COVID-19 pandemic has touched everyone in some way, and thousands of people directly. We know that includes members of our own News Guild local. People may be under economic stress from business furloughs and layoffs (including those who need help navigating unemployment or other sources of emergency funding.) They may need personal help – social, emotional, or just a friendly ear.
We want to help. As a start, we’ve created a page where we hope to gather information on and links to resources: As this emergency continues we will try to update and broaden it. We invite members to check it out.
If you know of resources, and want to help us provide support for fellow Guild members, you can contact Kathy Routliffe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-759-5988. We will add more contacts soon. Thank you all, and stay safe.
