The pandemic has hit Black communities disproportionately hard. As we approach its 2-year anniversary, we* want to honour the lives that were lost in the last two years with the In Memoriam Project. It is a video project that aims to remind us that the lives lost are more than statistics and graph points. If you’ve lost someone during the pandemic and want to share a piece of their memory, you can send us a picture and a message by filling out this form : https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Cb6w80rJxuYKXv-Qkxy1IJs0LFNSBW5ujYWckdqsW80/prefill.
