WHEN: Wednesday, May 4th at 8 p.m. ET
WHERE: Lafayette Park in Front of the White House (set up starts 7:30pm)
On the evening of May 4th, Public Citizen and our allies will hold a candlelight vigil in front of the White House marking the one-year anniversary since President Biden announced U.S. support for the TRIPS waiver at the WTO. A year later, the WTO has failed to deliver this important waiver, while the pandemic rages.
As part of the vigil, we will project video messages from Ady Barkan and a number of international civil society leaders on a huge screen calling on President Biden to secure a true TRIPS waiver that covers COVID-19 vaccines, testing, and treatments and demand Congress pass funding to vaccinate the world and save lives.
The event will be live-streamed on Facebook/Twitter and any cross-posting partners are welcome.
Please join us if you are able to, and please share this email with folks in your network!
