No Body Left Behind
No Body Left Behind is an online campaign centred around the disabled community’s concerns regarding the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, including mask and vaccine mandates. We hope that this campaign will raise awareness around those who are being left behind as the world returns to “normal”.
The No Body Left Behind videos are now being released daily! Starting on Monday, May 16th, a new video will be released every weekday. Experience the work of 10 incredible disabled artists and learn about how the COVID-19 pandemic and the lifting of restrictions has affected them.
We are currently raising money to go directly towards paying the artists and the ASL-English and Deaf interpreters who will be working on this project. We are relying solely on donations from our incredible community to support this project!
Join us on Thursday, May 31st at 7pm Eastern Daylight Time for the premiere and virtual screening of No Body Left Behind, followed by a discussion and Q&A session with our artists! ASL interpretation and captions will be provided at this event. To make this event more accessible, tickets are available by donation.
