COVID-19 Jubilee White House, IMF, G20 Letter

Your organization, faith community or congregation can sign the Jubilee COVID-19 Response Letter here

As COVID-19 takes lives, impacts the markets, affects healthcare and drives a global financial crisis, we the undersigned urge the International Monetary Fund, the G20 and White House to:
  • Cancel debt payments and expand debt relief for developing countries to bolster healthcare, protect the vulnerable and workers as they confront COVID-19
  • Mobilize additional resources to support all countries impacted by the economic and health impacts of the coronavirus
  • Improve debt restructuring, issue debt payment moratoriums and create expedient debt reprofiling processes for countries impacted by the coronavirus
  • Support all countries to emerge from the crisis with more resilience by encouraging policies and agreements to increase protections for the vulnerable, instill greater public budget transparency, implement financial crisis and market protections, promote responsible lending and borrowing and curb corruption and tax evasion
