As Famine Threatens the Globe, the U.S. Must Answer the Call | Opinion

For the first time in generations, Americans are looking at their own food supply with concern. Empty shelves at supermarkets, stories of farmers plowing under their crops and higher prices for some foods at checkout have all served to startle us out of complacency. While our food supply chains have proved mostly nimble in adapting to the closing of restaurants, schools and other institutional buyers, and Congress has stepped up with expanded safety nets for millions of Americans, this isn't the case for many places around the world. Coming into this year, millions of people in the developing world were staring starvation in the face. Now, many more will join them. Read more HERE.

Health leaders: We stuck together to #StayHome, now we can start together to #OpenSafely

The US should be a leader in the global fight against Covid-19

Americans are staring down an unprecedented crisis. We've already lost more than 71,000 of our fellow citizens. Millions of families live in fear and uncertainty every second. And large swaths of our workforce are losing their jobs each week. Together, we face a common, invisible enemy: the novel coronavirus, Covid-19. As two former US Senate majority leaders, we didn't always see eye to eye during our time together in Congress, but today, we certainly agree on at least two things: America must lead the rest of the world to defeat Covid-19.
