  1. Hello Congressman Garcia:

    My name is Eddie Ryan and I am a resident of Illinois as well as an advocate with The Borgen Project. Thank you for discussing the harmful effects of COVID-19 on our nation’s most vulnerable and for addressing the systemic disparities which it exposes in our Black and Brown communities.

    I believe that the United States must assume a position of global leadership in the fight to protect the world’s poor from impending catastrophe. Congressman Garcia, please fight hard to secure an additional $20 billion for the International Affairs Budget in the next COVID-19 stimulus package to benefit those in poverty all over the world through poverty-reduction efforts, anti-hunger programs, and vaccine initiatives like the Gavi Vaccine Alliance.

    Thank you for all of your work for Illinoisans and for Americans!

    Sincerely,
    Eddie Ryan
