Dear Friends,

 

On Saturday, May 15 from 9 AM to 3 PM, I’m taking part in an Emory Hillandale Hospital Community Vaccination event on the hospital’s South DeKalb campus: 5900 Hillandale Drive, Lithonia, GA 30058.

There are still 150 slots available for residents seeking the COVID-19 vaccine. The event will offer two-dose Pfizer vaccines. The second shot will be administered on June 5. Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available upon request. While walk ins are welcomed, registrations are preferred.

Unfortunately, the event will not have vaccines for 12-to-15-year-olds, but Emory will work to identify sites in South DeKalb where 12-to-15-year-olds will be vaccinated in the near future and prepare referrals on Saturday.

As part of our Congressional Black Caucus GOTV – Get Out The Vaccine tour – I made stops at Berean Christian Church in Stone Mountain last Thursday and Springfield Baptist Church in Conyers and the Lou Walker Senior Center with DeKalb County Commissioners Mereda Davis Johnson and Larry Johnson on Friday.

 

I also joined Sen. Jon Ossoff at my alma mater Clark Atlanta University last Friday to announce funding for HBCUs under the American Rescue Plan and on Saturday, May 8 took part in the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Day of Action at the King Center on Sweet Auburn. Under the plan, Clark Atlanta University will receive $16.4 million, Morehouse College will receive $7.8 million, Morehouse School of Medicine will receive $358,000 and Spelman College will receive $7.4 million.

Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is launching the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program. The program will provide qualifying families a discount on their monthly Internet bills. The EBB will provide struggling families a discount of $50 or more off the monthly cost of home Internet service. It may also provide an additional subsidy for a computer. Eligible households can enroll by contacting their Internet service provider and asking to sign up. To see if you qualify, visit https://getemergencybroadband.org. For more information on the program itself, you can visit: https://www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit.

 

As always, I appreciate your time and feedback. Please remember you can reach me and get good information on my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages by clicking the icons at the top of this e-letter. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to represent you in Congress. Please continue following CDC guidelines. If you have any questions about the Rescue Plan and what it means for you and your family, please don’t hesitate to call my district office at 770-987-2291. Thank you!
