Join us for our August Thursday evening Marked By COVID Community Meeting to meet others impacted by COVID, learn about opportunities to advance memorial work, and to hear from our guest speakers.
August 4: Covid Memorials
August 11: Dr. Steven Thrasher, author the Viral Underclass
August 18: Community Meet and Greet
August 25: Dr. Opal Lee, the grandmother of Juneteenth
These discussions are hosted by Marked By COVID, a non-profit organization founded by and run by people severely harmed by COVID. We share our COVID loss and disability stories to hold truth to power.
We're currently leading the efforts for permanent memorialization, a Covid commission, and a Covid Memorial Day. Legislation is currently being considered by Congress to establish the first Monday in March as a permanent holiday to forever remember the 1 million+ (known) lives lost to Covid in the US and more than 15 million (known) lives lost around the world.
