Congresswoman Barbara Lee Kicks Off GOTV (Get out the Vaccine) Campaign in California’s 13th District
Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13) today announced a COVID-19 vaccination campaign from May 1-8th, 2021 in California’s 13th Congressional District. Similar campaigns are being hosted by members of the Congressional Black Caucus in districts across the country.
Congresswoman Lee will join with local faith-based organizations, community health centers, and other groups to campaign for the East Bay community to get vaccinated.
“The Congressional Black Caucus has mounted a national grassroots campaign, which I am proud to bring to my district in the East Bay,” said Congresswoman Lee. “I am asking faith-based organizations, health organizations, my fellow elected officials and everyone else to join us in calling for our community to get vaccinated.
“In just 100 days, the Biden Administration has helped administer over 200 million doses and has made it a top priority to address vaccine equity in medically underserved communities. I am proud to have fought for investments in our community health centers and to build trust in vaccines at the local level through trusted messengers.
“With Mother’s Day around the corner, I encourage everyone to get vaccinated to protect our loved ones and our entire community. Now, our work must continue to ‘Get Out the Vaccine’ and ensure that our communities have access to vaccine resources so we can stay healthy, crush this virus, finally get through this pandemic.”
