The situation of COVID-19 is rapidly changing. We had greatly wanted to be optimistic that this situation would improve for the better, but within the last 48 hours the situation has only gotten worse. The WHO is officially calling the virus a pandemic. COVID-19 is now affecting more than 129,000 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.
In spite of all the challenges before us, 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.
Check back shortly for RSVP information, virtual toolkits, and click here to tell us your ideas for a Virtual MM.
There are still #MillionsMissing from ME, and simply put, that is not enough progress. We demand urgent action from our governments to increase research funding, invest in clinical care, and fight for a cure, now. Join us by participating virtually.
Help us tell the world that this is not enough.
Join #MillionsMissing 2020 globally and demand more be done for ME.
Only large group virtual events need to register. If you are having a private or individual virtual event, you don’t need to register, but check back for virtual toolkits and updates on how to be a part of #MillionsMissing no matter where you are protesting from.
