Remember: rest is resistance:) Take the breaks you need. Then, fight on!
Thank you! You were fabulous!
Thank you, Loyce, for your wisdom!
Wise words, thank you so much Loyce! ❤️
Paula Kiger (she/her)
Thank you, Loyce!
Great words, leadership, transparency and hope, Thanks Loyce.
Thanks to Loyce for her ideas!
are these GLOBAL numbers, including the US?
From Deborah Grieser: are these GLOBAL numbers, including the US?
They are global/LMICs
Has the Global Fund kept money to fulfill upcoming grant committments?
Lindsay K. Saunders (she/her)
@Sabrina, what is LMICs? Could you please spell out acronyms? I figured that one out, but it's not as familiar to folks. Thanks!
:) good idea
LMICs = low and middle income countries
How did Results arrive at these figures?
Another issue is -- if many countries lack testing capacity then we could see de facto travel bans from those countries when negative tests are required to enter other countries.
Hi Deborah - there were some evalutions of the need across health and humanitarian sectors - the Global Fund number was based on projections of disruption and costs of new diagnostics and treatment etc...
We worked with implementers and other coalition partners to come to that full $20 billion number - seeing costs across the different sectors were adding up to more than that
but settling on at least that amount.
Between lines, Lee seemed to accept that $11 billion was the number she was going to work w in For. Ops.; i.e., not fighting for more in current package? Is that the state of play given very tight timelines of reconciliation?
is GPE the best mecanismo to distribute education funding, or other multilateral orgs
f I ask for $20 billion and highlight $4 billion for the Global Fund and $2 billion for hunger/famine, what do I say when I’m asked “What funds are the other $16 billion for?”
I have the same question as Craig.
Reporting of TB cases in the US also went down...
(according to early numbers)
Roger - you are right on the timeline being tight
Taliilee T Gemechu
I also was wondering about what Craig asked!
Diana Tyree Eddy
Is there a way to infer how many TB cases there are?
Alicia Stromberg (she/her)
A question that RESULTS Georgia got in a lobby meeting earlier this week was: "how do your global funding asks align with Biden's current proposal?"
Correction: the other $14 billion, not $16. Math error!
@Diana epi will help us estimate, but no way to infer for sure...
Here's a good resource for understanding the impact of COVID on TB programs: https://spark.adobe.com/page/xJ7pygvhrIAqW/
We are still calling for $20 billion - even though it's likely only 11 billion will be included at this point. We do want to make the point that we hope this is not the end of the broader covid-relief and the full need is there
On @Craig's question what's a part of the rest of the $$ we are calling for other money for bilateral global health, international disaster assistance (humanitarian funds) and economic support funds
Sarah Izabel - MD
Does this info take into account undocumented individuals?
to hopefully support broader development programs
Are we asking any more $$ for GAVI?
"is GPE the best mecanismo to distribute education funding, or other multilateral orgs" -<- We think it's the most effective multilateral because it reaches all impoverished countries, and includes the voices of civil society, parents, teachers, etc. Others like Unicef, Education Cannot Wait -- also really critical and work together w/ GPE
(Ms). Emily - B'ham, AL
Is this data available for each state?
@ Emily, sadly, not at this time
Zandi may have it but we have not seen it
We' know bilateral TB programs and global education programs and such were not included in other relief already... we want the funding to be as flexible as possible to address the programs that have seen such disruptions already
@Kimball Not asking for more Gavi money
So glad we got that $4 b illion last year
Dana C (she/her)
It's also reflective of the increase in homelessness. No apt no rent due
Lanie Dougherty (they/them/theirs)
This chart was greatly helpful in our recent meeting with Neguse. Recommend using it!!
"Has the Global Fund kept money to fulfill upcoming grant committments?" Yes! They've taken two steps: 1) allowed countries to identify up to 5% of existing grants to reprogram to Covid needs, and 2) launched a dedicated Covid-19 funding window.
Gerard Stamm, Sr.
Our results team already met with one of our senators' staff. I was the contact person. Days later, after sending my usual follow-up summarizing our needs, he did not vote for the COVID relief. How do you propose I follow-up his inaction with the staff members I have a relationship with? Should I express my disappointment? Are there other things for which I can still ask this Republican? How bold should I be?
It would be great if you could share a breakdown of the $20 billion "ask" for background info if asked in our meetings. Thanks,
We will just be calling for fulfilling the regular gavi pldege in the FY22 approps bill - but that's only maintaining the $290 million annual ask
Re: GPE, we at RESULTS helped form GPE since its inception (including its predecessor, Fast Track Initiative).
I”m going to defer any more discussion of the global ask until the Global Pleanary session I’m paying attention to Meredith now.
when I looked at our leave behinds it said $60 billion for rental relief. did we change this?
@Lisa, yes, we changed it this week.
Most updated leave behinds are on our lobbying page here: https://results.org/volunteers/lobbying/
Once budget resolutions were released, $60 billion was off the table
the public charge is being addressed which will assist undocumented folks
Can someone save the chat window and post it—I cannot watch chat and pay attention at the same time! I know I can save it myself, but that is distracting too.
Increasing the minimum wage will help to relieve the burden
Deborah Lash (she/her)
Hi Ann, you will be able to view the chat with the recording later. Should be up tonight.
You can access the chat in the recording, Ann
MW is important but, based in the President'
s statement yesterday, not likely to be in this package
Is the $30 billion in the ask for Emergency rental assistance in addition to the $25 billion that was in last year’s bill?
Housing choice vouchers work well when local housing authorities have the funding and support to get them out to the communities effectively
Gerard Stamm, Sr.
How is our campaign changed since Biden's stimulus package has already passed?
They are a godsend to families living in poverty but do require advocacy locally as well to make sure they are living up to their charge
Are we asking for targeting language for the next $30B in housing assistance?
Hi @Gerard - the Biden package has not passed - they are still negotiating the details there!
"$30 billion, targeted to those most at risk of eviction."
And why we are sograteful yall will be taking action with members asap!
can we switch back and for the on the plenaries.
I read that the current package expands EITC to older workers but not younger workers- is that the case?
Are both plenaries going to be recorded?
YEs - @ Craig
No, Lisa. It goes to younger workers too
sorry for being late
I believe from 25 to 21
@betsy - I suggest you watch one live and one recorded
These tax credits increasing are very exciting!
