The situation of COVID-19 is rapidly changing. We wanted to be optimistic that this situation would improve for the better, but even in the last 48 hours the situation has dramatically shifted. The WHO is officially classifying the virus a pandemic. COVID-19 is now affecting more than 127,000 people worldwide. 

We can’t in good conscience, continue with in-person #MillionsMissing events. We care about the health of you and every person that would have come to these events. We are still doing #MillionsMissing on May 12th. It will all be virtual. Our community has always had a strong, powerful, and supportive virtual presence. This event will be no different. 

We believe we can use this moment to build our virtual movement and community and come together in solidarity with all of the #MillionsMissing around the world. 

We have decided not to reschedule later in the year, because dates in the future are also uncertain, but this virtual event will be strong, supportive, and a time for our community to come together. A chance to be joyful and resilient in a time of uncertainty. 

We will be creating a form to share your ideas and brainstorm with us for our virtual #MillionsMissing as well as a link to RSVP and get updates. 

Moving forward, responding to Covid-19 coronavirus will remain a top priority for all staff and volunteers efforts until the situation is brought under control. #MEAction will continue to rapidly identify the tools, teams and resources we can bring together to support our community through this situation. Tomorrow, we will be sharing more information and a webpage dedicated towards Covid-19. 

In spite of all the challenges before us, once again, we believe the #MEAction community can use this moment to build our virtual movement and community and come together in solidarity with all of the #MillionsMissing around the world.

In solidarity,

Jen, Laurie, Ben, Erin, Jaime, Espe, Holly, Adriane and Hannah
