Recently, Stand members teamed up with Memphis for All to do vaccine outreach in Frayser. As the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact Memphis and Shelby County, it’s important to make sure that all members of our community are informed about their eligibility and options for vaccination. The digital divide that we often refer to extends beyond the classroom; families that don’t have computers or internet access at home may have a more difficult time accessing all kinds of resources and information. So, we hit the streets to meet people where they are.
Stand members went door-to-door in the Raleigh-Frayser area, connecting with residents, handing out flyers, and sharing their own vaccination experiences. It was a great opportunity to strengthen relationships while addressing concerns about the COVID vaccines. Stand Outreach Coordinator Regina Clarke spoke with Fox 13 about the importance of this kind of community engagement. Watch the video here.
