Lehigh University Art Galleries (LUAG) is joining an initiative to combat COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy through its campaign, #DrawTheLineAgainstCovid or #LaLíneaContraCovid.

The organization received a $10,000 grant as part of the national initiative, Community for Immunity. LUAG is one of 51 museums and libraries to be awarded the grant.

“Our initiative, titled #LaLíneaContraCovid, aims to provide access to COVID-19 vaccine information and reduce vaccine hesitancy,” said Elise Schaffer, a coordinator at LUAG.

#DrawTheLineAgainstCovid is a bilingual promotional campaign, providing free sketching kits and a one year membership to the galleries and workshops for those who can provide proof of vaccination.
