“We pledge to help bring humanity together in a common purpose to slow the spread of this virus enough to allow hospitals to cope and a vaccine to be developed, and to strive to ensure that this crisis brings out the best in us. To each do our part, we pledge to:

💬SPREAD WISDOM – by sharing reliable, factual information with friends and family, and countering voices of fear and demonization with love and connection.”
