We are pleased to share that our fourth season of our Free the Vaccine for COVID-19 campaign kicked off two weeks ago! This season's cohort intentionally includes a much smaller group of activists engaging in targeted work over a period of just 8 weeks. In past seasons, we made headlines with our DC rallies, starting with our first Funk Rally in October 2020 demanding global access to a safe and effective people's vaccine, and the second where we got to announce that the US Government would support negotiations on the TRIPS Waiver. We even got Senator Bernie Sanders to join the team in advocating to free the vaccine! Of course there is so much campaigning work ahead to reach our goals but we're delighted to be back in our advocacy labs together! This season, our focus is to continue to advance goals towards the global accessibility of the publicly-funded NIH-Moderna vaccine. The Biden administration continues to drag its feet when it comes to using all the tools in its power to increase global access to COVID-19 medicines made with our taxpayer dollars. Throughout these weeks, we are developing our messaging through a series of artistic prototypes to change the conversation surrounding the Moderna vaccine and increase pressure on both Moderna and the Biden Administration to "share the recipe" and curb the pandemic for everyone, everywhere. Our Free the Vaccine Care Bears also got to make an appearance at a recent rally ahead of the G20 (because Sharing is Caring!). The action was led by our allies at Peoples Action including an all night vigil outside COVID-19 Czar Jeffery Zients who has not done enough to ensure access the vaccine. The protest made Democracy Now - check it out here and follow us on social media for more regular updates!

As always, thanks for your support! None of us are safe until all of us are safe!
