Demand Governor Kemp extend the shelter in place order in Georgia!

I am Catolyn Merriweather, the daughter of JoeAnn Snead (pictured above). My mother died from COVID-19 on April 21, 2020, in Atlanta, Georgia. She was a loving mother, grandmother, who was looking forward to holding her great grand-baby due on July 15th.

I want reduce the likelihood of hundreds of more families experiencing the loss of a loved one from COVID-19. Please join with me and the Georgia Coalition 2 Save Lives and demand that Governor Kemp NOT lift the shelter in place order and reopen businesses until medical research and scientific models show that it is safe to do so.

My mother was more than a number. Help us get 10,000 signatures by Friday May 1st at Midnight. #morethananumber #GC2SL

Why is this important?

There are currently 25,939 active cases of Covid-19 in Georgia. Lifting the shelter in place will only contribute to the spread of Covid-19. We need Georgia to remain closed until medical research and scientific models show that it is safe to reopen. My mother Joeann Snead could have been your mother, daughter, aunt, or friend. Help to flatten the curve by demanding Governor Kemp to extend the shelter in place order.

Reasons for signing

  • Because i am an Essential worker and i bare witness to these inequalities of less pay, housing and job opporunities, advancement in the work place and the pay for minorities is not a livable wage even in the hospital working on the frontline we get paid below 12.00 to bathe do vital sign draw blood , feed patients. Even the ones with covid 19 the other day i had over 23 patients to care for by myself with no help and yet cant make enough to survive
  • #BlackLivesMatter
  • Because it is senseless to want money so much that one kills the people who are helping to boost the economy. People need to live for money to have a meaning in the first place.
