Why join ACT?
Become an advocate for comprehensive testing in your community. The COVID-19 pandemic made it clear that accessible and reliable diagnostic testing is critical to the health and well-being of our communities—especially communities of color and vulnerable populations. We must maintain the progress that we’ve made to improve our response to health crises. By committing to ACT, you will help:
Combat COVID-19 variants. Dangerous, new strains of COVID-19 put us all at risk. Testing is the best way to locate and contain new outbreaks and can help us beat the pandemic for good.
It’s crucial that we continue affordable, accessible and robust COVID-19 testing programs to help mitigate exposure and reduce health inequities as part of a comprehensive strategy to protect Black lives.
During the AIDS epidemic, the introduction of widespread testing helped curb the virus’ deadly spread. We can follow this successful model in stopping the spread of Covid-19 and speed the return to work, school, and everyday activities.
Now is the time to embrace the solutions given to us by science that offer a way out of this crisis, particularly for Black and brown communities that have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic.
Communities have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19 and implementing testing programs to identify where the virus is spreading will help us keep the infection rate under control.
