#MillionsMissing 2022 Will be in Two Parts

This year, we are excited to announce that #MillionsMissing will be held in two parts: May and September!

#MillionsMissing is about demonstrating our community’s collective refusal to let the stories of people with ME be erased, or access to healthcare and medical research blocked. We protest against all barriers to justice for the growing community of people with ME, including those affected by Long COVID and other complex chronic conditions.

In May, we will focus on coming together virtually to celebrate our vibrant community through support, art, and empowerment.

In September, our goal will be to gather in person, in ways that are safe to do so, and use the power of our collective action to win widespread attention for the health justice we all need.

Both #MillionsMissing events will have virtually-accessible components because your participation is critical to this movement, no matter your health or ability level.

We invite you to participate in both events to focus on community gathering in May and outward action in September. There will be actions in both the UK and the US and options to get involved and take action across the globe.

SAVE May 12th for a #MillionsMissing Community Event

And we will be in touch about September actions and events as the timeline for the year becomes clearer.
 
With the millions more people being diagnosed with ME, now is the time to take action together, and fight for real, lasting change.
 
In solidarity,
All of us at #MEAction
