COVID + OUR COMMUNITY
We recognize that OUR community has been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and has an increased risk of getting sick and dying from the virus. As individuals and communities continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to doing our part by providing credible information that will protect you, your family, and OUR community.

COVID-19 RAPID RESPONSE
Since March 19, 2020, the NC Black Alliance has taken proactive steps to provide Black North Carolinians with digital spaces to convene and communicate their concerns as relates to COVID-19. These digital spaces have been (and will continue to be) offered statewide until community centers, churches, and other common meeting spaces are available.
Because each area has its own specific needs, NCBA has created documents for each call it hosted in hopes that this will help us navigate these challenging times.
