Dear Jennifer;

As the United States experiences a surge in COVID-19 cases, there is an urgent need to increase vaccination rates. The Communities for Immunity project is calling on libraries and museums throughout the nation to help create and deliver evidence-driven resources, programs, and approaches to address vaccine concerns in a respectful and factual manner.

Museums and libraries are uniquely positioned to help address vaccine hesitancy because they are among the most trusted sources of information in the United States. This is especially true of tribal libraries and museums which ensure the cultural continuity of the communities they serve.

Communities for Immunity is coordinated by the Association of Science and Technology Centers and the American Alliance of Museum. The Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums is coordinating outreach to Native Nations.  Funding and support are provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Network of the National Library of Medicine.

To support the efforts of libraries and museums, funding is available. The first round of applications are due on September 2, with announcements made by September 16.

For more information about applying for funding or to access fact-based resources on COVID-19 and vaccines, please visit CommunitiesforImmunity.org<https://atalm.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1b5fd0b3926b2a0236f0325a1&id=135fa2a874&e=ca34d32c32> or www. atalm.org<https://atalm.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1b5fd0b3926b2a0236f0325a1&id=91f8863308&e=ca34d32c32>

We hope to see you at the funding webinar tomorrow.  We apologize for the short notice and ask for your understanding as we all move with a sense of urgency to help keep our communities safe. If you cannot attend the webinar, it will be recorded and posted on our website.

With best wishes and much gratitude,

Walter Echo-Hawk, Chairman of the Board
