Together Against COVID: Not Forgotten

Virtual vigil hosted by U.S. PIRG, Marked by COVID, Mourning Our Losses, Doctors for America, COVID Survivors for Change, The Center for Popular Democracy,, and COVID Grief Network.

Please join us and hundreds of others in an action to highlight the real cost of COVID.

As 2020 draws to a close more than 300,000 people have died from COVID-19.

One of the most heartbreaking parts of this national tragedy is knowing that so many of the deaths were preventable. If our federal and state leaders had done what was needed to control the spread of the virus, most of the COVID deaths in 2020 could have been avoided.

Our public officials need to feel accountable for every person we’ve lost to COVID. So we’re holding a week-long vigil. We’re going to make and post short videos where we read the names of the victims. Because they are not just numbers. They are people we’ve lost.

To join our vigil register below, and we will provide you with the names of 20 people who were lost to this deadly virus in 2020. We will also provide a short introduction and simple instructions on how to make and post your video.

The week-long vigil starts December 27th; record your video and post it on your social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) anytime before the year ends.
