Covid-19 LVN Conversations

While we are keeping physical distance to protect public health, let’s stay connected to what matters most.

As critical decisions are being made about resources, health care and public safety, it is more important than ever that journalists and policymakers hear the stories and experiences of folks who are otherwise overlooked.

Share your voice in an intimate conversation that becomes a virtual town hall that can hold as many Americans as are able to participate.

If you are longing for company and connection that goes deeper than a Twitter feed or Instagram story, and want to share your hopes, concerns, and reflections with others please join us!
