The COVID-19 pandemic poses an unprecedented challenge for our country, threatening our health and wellbeing. In the year since the World Health Organization declared that we were amidst a pandemic, the coronavirus has killed more than 500,000 Americans. Although we can see reasons for optimism, we are not out of the woods yet. As the COVID-19 vaccines continue to roll out, we need to work together to ensure that our government has a coordinated and strategic response to safeguard the public’s health.
This March, National Craft Month, we are creating a digital quilt to honor the memories of those who we have lost to this unprecedented disease, show support for those who have kept us safe and demonstrate the need for action by our leaders.
