This project entails gathering information on COVID-19 to create easy-to-read infographics for the general population and vulnerable populations (i.e. Pregnant women, undocumented immigrants, etc). Volunteers can choose to help with researching the most up to date information, fact checking, designing infographics, or translating infographics. We are also open to volunteers’ ideas on topics/populations to target with infographics. This project is ideal for students who would like to work remotely. Both short-term and long-term projects are available.
contraCOVID is a national student-run organization that aims to help Latinx, Immigrant, and other underserved populations during the COVID-19 pandemic. In Gainesville, we have adapted the contraCOVID model to create a multilingual, low literacy-friendly community resource guide to connect underserved groups to updated information. We are managing a social media campaign (Facebook & Instagram) to disseminate our resource guide and inform the public on various health topics. You can access our resource guide here.
We are currently looking for individuals to join our team:
- Graphic Design Team: 2-3 individuals to each create weekly reader-friendly graphics for social media posts (one graphic per week) on targeted topics for resource dissemination.
- contraCOVID Translation Team: Translate news articles, graphics, and community resource information to Spanish, Korean, and Mandarin speakers.
