Faiths4Vaccines National Summit
May 26, 2021
On behalf of Faiths4Vaccines, Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton invites ELCA rostered ministers and lay leaders to attend the Faiths4Vaccines National Summit on May 26, 2021 from 1 to 4 pm EDT.
Join us at the National Summit for the largest multi-faith gathering to support equitable and far-reaching vaccine distribution in the United States. Faith leaders and faith-based organizations in attendance will receive training, resources and empowerment to engage their communities to ensure equitable vaccine access, combat hesitancy and potentially use their houses of worship as vaccination sites.
Faith leaders, faith communities, and medical professionals are leading efforts to respond, recover from the unprecedented health crises facing our nation and the world. Now, equipped with a life-saving vaccine, we have the chance to bring this devastating, and all the suffering it has caused, to an end.
Now is the time to partake in open and honest dialogue between faith leaders and county, state and national health officials to identify opportunities for faith-based institutions to further engage and support local communities to increase vaccination rates.
