Survivor Stories

We are Covid-19 survivors.

A coronavirus survivor is anyone who has had their life turned on its head because of this pandemic. We honor people who have survived the Covid-19 virus without lingering symptoms. We honor those whose symptoms lasted far after they tested negative for the virus. We honor those whose livelihoods disappeared, or grew dangerous, overnight. And we honor the people who were killed by the pandemic, along with their loved ones who survived, but whose lives were forever changed. We honor our stories and our trauma, and we commit to taking action together.
