The 600,000+ COVID deaths in the US have impacted the lives of countless family members. By understanding the needs of these survivors, and responding to them, employers can make a big difference.
Chris Kocher, Executive Director, COVID Survivors for Change, introduces us to two women whose lives -- personal and workplace -- have been profoundly affected by COVID losses.
The conversation with Chris Kocher is available in three formats. Access each format by clicking below.
COVID Survivors for Change is a national, non-partisan movement bringing together Americans who have had a loved one die from Covid-19, as well as those who have survived the virus and those whose lives have been dramatically altered by the pandemic.
As part of Covid Survivors for Change, Americans are mobilizing to make sure that communities have the funding, resources and leadership in place to address future public health emergencies. Survivors will also find community and healing in meeting other people whose lives have been forever changed by the pandemic.
The national COVID March to Remember happening on August 7th across the country. COVID March to Remember will consist of Awareness & Action Marches and Gatherings across the United States on August 7th – where we will collectively take at least 615,000 steps to honor every life taken by COVID, raise awareness, call for public safety behaviors, and demand more action and support for COVID Survivors.
Already more than 25 marches in 18 states have been organized and more than 16 covid groups have joined together to support. Any individual supporters can sign up for a march or help us reach our goal of having 615,000 steps taken, or to request that their name or their loved ones name be carried across the Brooklyn Bridge by completing this form.
