What’s Trending? 📈 Guns and infrastructure

Getting my vaccine!
A year ago, I couldn’t imagine this moment. Grateful doesn’t begin to cut it.

WHAT’S TRENDING THIS WEEK

  • Preventing gun violence: On Thursday, President Biden announced six executive actions aimed at curbing gun violence. They include stopping the proliferation of “ghost guns,” limiting devices that make guns more deadly, and investing in community violence prevention programs.
  • Vaccines: Last week, President Biden announced that all American adults would be eligible for the Covid-19 vaccines by April 19. By the end of this week, 50% of US adults will have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and 30% of adults in the US will be fully vaccinated. The Biden-Harris administration remains on track to administer 200 million doses in their first 100 days in office.
