In March, The 19th will host an afternoon of critical conversations on the nation’s fight to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic — and the lessons we learned from it. 

We’ll hear from the top women leading the Biden-Harris administration’s coronavirus response, state leaders blazing the trail in vaccine distribution, and the frontline researchers and health care workers battling misinformation and racial disparities as they race to get shots in arms.

We also plan to include stories from you, our readers, during the event. Have you been on the frontlines of this pandemic as a healthcare worker? As a woman, person of color or a member of the LGBTQ+ community, what challenges have you faced this past year while working to save lives? 

Fill out the form below to share your experience. Include a photo and a short testimonial to help describe what working as a frontline health care worker has been like for you. Several reader stories will be featured during our upcoming event to showcase the resilience of our community as we work to recover from the devastating pandemic.
