Community Resources

Join the Conversation at 6:30pm on Tuesday, December 15! 

Join this Town Hall tomorrow, Tues. Dec. 15th at 6:30pm!

This Town Hall will provide a forum for an honest, factual discussion between the community, health care providers, representatives from the CoVPN faith initiative, Philadelphia’s faith communities, and Congressman representing Philadelphia. It will include information about the COVID-19 vaccines soon to be approved for distribution, discuss community concerns about being vaccinated, and how government distribution plans affect Black communities in Philadelphia. This is an opportunity for the community to share their voices and have their questions answered about COVID-19 and vaccine research.
