Daniel Edelman quoted in In These Times

In These Times spoke to Next100 associate director of strategy and operations Daniel Edelman about how to build a contact tracing public health corps.

In These Times’ Dayton Martindale wrote on how to build a contact tracing public health corps to enable the country to safely reopen the economy. To explore whether AmeriCorps would be the right way to build such a program, he interviewed Next100 associate director of strategy and operations Daniel Edelman about his and Next100 executive director Emma Vadehra’s recent report on how growing AmeriCorps can help the U.S. respond to the pandemic. Daniel says:

“Scaling up existing systems … can be helpful when you need to move fast … AmeriCorps has historically had bipartisan support, so it might be a good vehicle.”
