COVID-19 Calls for Global Action

Take Action Now in Support of WHO

The Trump administration formally submitted its letter of intent to withdraw from the World Health Organization (WHO). In case we haven’t made it clear, this move is incredibly shortsighted and goes against our interests and priorities as Americans. As COVID-19 continues to ravage our country and planet, the U.S. should not—and cannot—tackle the challenges of this global pandemic alone.

We ask that you urge your Members of Congress to oppose the Administration’s irresponsible decision.

77% of Americans put their Trust in WHO

They trust the World Health Organization (WHO) to handle the global response to coronavirus. Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike are united in their belief that no one country can battle a pandemic alone. Let Congress know that Americans like you support global coordination in our fight against the global pandemic.
