As Nashvillians fought to maintain their health, livelihood, and well-being in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic, The Equity Alliance submitted a proposal to Nashville Mayor John Cooper advocating for how best to spend the $121 million in CARES Act federal funding.
The proposal included four categories of demands for local government:
- Ensure Nashvillians can vote safely
- Stimulate the economy
- Support working families
- Support vulnerable populations
