Austin COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall

Hundreds of residents from in or nearby Chicago’s Austin neighborhood participated in a virtual town hall meeting on April 25, 2020. Experts shared up-to-date information about the impact of COVID-19 in our community, highlighted key resources, and discussed the best ways to protect yourself and your family.

Missed it? Watch the video on the Austin Coming Together Facebook page.

The Office of Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and Austin Coming Together (ACT) are hosted this event because communities of color, like Austin, have been hit particularly hard by this pandemic. Please help us spread the word by inviting your neighbors and sharing this event!

This effort is part of the strategies of the recently formed Racial Equity Rapid Response Team to decrease the disproportionately high COVID-19 infection and mortality rates in African American neighborhoods of Chicago.
