Event description
Join us as faith-based organization unite to conduct vaccination outreach

About this event

The Tri-County Interfaith Partnership invites you to join a historical event where faith leaders from across the region unite their voices and bring hope to our communities.  Considered some of the most trusted neighborhood messengers, faith leaders play a vital role in helping people overcome vaccine hesitancy and feel safe in taking the vaccination.  

Equity is at the core of this partnership, ensuring that we support smaller faith-based groups that are often volunteer-based, and carry the spiritual load of grieving families, while simultaneously providing assistance to their community needs, such as vaccine access and support. These faith-based organizations, located in some of the most underserved regions, are usually left behind. 

Our event will explore some key themes:

  • Faith Leaders & staff considered essential workers. The role of faith leaders as some of the most trusted messengers who can influence followers to overcome hesitancy and take vaccines.
  • The success of partnering with county officials in ensuring vulnerable populations have the connections they need to access vaccines.
  • The Importance of a diverse group of health experts that represent our communities' demographics and can relate COVID-19 messaging in a culturally-relevant way.
  • The intersection of people with disabilities and people of faith, particularly when it comes to seniors in communities of color.
  • The resources and tools, such as messaging, available to help faith leaders.

We also extend this invitation to philanthropy, government, and other community partners that can support faith-based organizations in our region.
