Our Voices Campaign

Black and brown communities have been disproportionately impacted by this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, and the Tennessee Department of Health’s Division of Health Disparities Elimination wants to tell the stories of individuals in their own words. From Sullivan County to Shelby County, we encourage those in these minority communities to share how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted either their personal or professional life. These are our stories.
