On March 12th, in a public press conference, Senator Sanders addressed the crisis of the coronavirus. In the press conference, the Senator said that we have an absolute, moral imperative that our response -- as a government, as a society, as business communities, and as individuals -- meets the enormity of this crisis.
As people work from home and are directed to quarantine, it will be easy to feel like we are in this alone, or that we must only worry about ourselves and let everyone else fend for themselves.
As Senator Sanders said today, now is the time for solidarity. We must fight with love and compassion for those most vulnerable to the effects of this pandemic.
Because Senator Sanders and our campaign are taking this unprecedented moment seriously, we have made the campaign decision to stop our Bernie Journey program for the time being. The safety and well-being of our staff and supporters is of utmost importance.
Meanwhile, we are going to continue to talk to voters in March 17 states and beyond through our remote organizing program.
Volunteers and supporters will be asked to:
Thank you for being a part of our movement, and for fighting to create a government and an economy that works for all of us.
