National COVID-19 Remembrance planned for October 4, 2020

COVID Survivors for Change, a national group of families of COVID victims and survivors, will lead a National COVID-19 Remembrance on Sunday, October 4.

They are calling for a national moment of silence at noon on that day, and will hold a safe and socially-distanced event on the Ellipse in Washington, D.C., to remember those lost to COVID-19, to honor frontline and essential workers, and to demand that elected officials do more to develop a national plan for safety and recovery. The event will include speakers and performances by artists and will be streamed online.

More than six months into the pandemic, over 6 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and nearly 200,000 have died, including many CWA members, friends, and family members. If you have lost someone close to you or from your local to COVID, please share their name here so that we can honor their memory as part of the Remembrance on October 4.
