No matter how large or small your nonprofit is, you can make a difference in helping the people you serve receive a COVID vaccine when they are eligible. Whether the people your nonprofit works with are experiencing issues with trust in or access to the vaccine, your nonprofit is positioned to help. Your frontline view lets you not only see the obstacles but also identify the solutions.
You can hear directly from Dr. Vin Gupta about what we all need to do to keep our communities safe. Melissa Rogers, Executive Director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, will identify ways nonprofits can connect with additional resources. Then, three nonprofits that have paved the way helping their communities overcome obstacles of trust in or access to information and vaccines will share their stories so we can learn how every nonprofit can be part of the solution of ending the pandemic.
