While you are staying at home to protect your community and yourself, there are many ways for you to support our most vulnerable populations who are struggling during the pandemic.
You will find a complete list of organizations below which provide activism opportunities to help others who are suffering from COVID-19 and the difficult circumstances it has generated. This list can also serve as a resource for you, if you are struggling yourself.
Please also take a look at our “Helpful Resources” list, which includes the NLM’s Taking Action Starter Kit, where you can find ways to participate in social activism while staying at home.
At the end of each school year, the NLM's Young Heroes Outreach Program, which brings the Museum’s civic leadership curriculum directly into area schools, holds a grand celebration to showcase the Social Action Projects created by all of the participating schools. This year the celebration was a VIRTUAL event and their projects are available for viewing on this website!
