In a few minutes, the Berkeley community will be coming together to help one another as we face the COVID-19 emergency. 

Mayor Jesse Arreguin, along with bestselling author Michael Lewis, will be hosting a live online event for the Berkeley Relief Fund at 3pm today to support small businesses, arts nonprofits, and residential tenants during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will feature interviews and videos of people who have been impacted by COVID-19, along with other guest appearances. 

Join the Live Event at https://berkeleyrelieffund.org/ at 3pm 

The Berkeley Relief Fund was unanimously approved by the City Council on Tuesday. The City is contributing $3 Million to the Relief Fund and are asking our community to match. The Fund is now open and accepting donations. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of the proceeds will go to those significantly impacted. To donate, visit the Berkeley Relief Fund website, which also includes additional information and FAQs about the fund. 

Be sure to pass this message around to your friends, family, and neighbors. By working together, we can help us ensure that our Berkeley community continues to thrive on the other side of this crisis. Please join us and your neighbors at 3pm.
