As a followup to last fall’s Resisting COVID Denialism series, we are facilitating a Community of Practice where organizers against COVID denialism can work on developing their practices and strategies together, and ultimately coalesce as a broader movement rooted in the principles of disability justice.

Program Full-Description

As the conditions of COVID change – and also stay the same or even regress – organizers against COVID denialism are constantly making adjustments and searching for new connections and resources. Many of our organizations are local and/or isolated, and have few points of connection with a broader movement rooted in the principles of disability justice. 

This is a 6-part Community of Practice series to support organizers in making these connections. There will be 3 sessions in the spring and 3 sessions in the fall. Joining the community of practice means making a commitment to prioritize attendance and active participation. This is a collective commitment not just to the space, but to each other and to the ongoing shared work of strategizing against COVID denialism.

This offering is a followup to the COVID Denialism Clinics held in 2023, for attendees who wanted to develop working practices together. The goal of the spring sessions is to strategize based on the current organizing conditions and contexts, assess a range of approaches, go out and try the practices applicable to each of our contexts, and then come back to this group to share learnings and offer support. We’ll use case studies from the group to learn about different strategies; folks can then decide what makes sense to bring back to their contexts, and share back in the fall sessions

Throughout this Community of Practice, the group will...

  • Feel more rooted in a community and network of folks organizing against COVID denialism. 
  • Develop groups to be more resourced to share organizing and support practices with others  
  • Troubleshoot common issues related to organizing against COVID denialism

This program is designed for:

  • Participants from PeoplesHub's COVID denialism clinics
  • Nominated folks who have been organizing in relation to COVID or disability justice

The expectation is that you're actively practicing something whether you identify as an organizer or not.

This community of practice will include strategizing to redistribute power. Since people of the global majority have been and continue to be disproportionately impacted by COVID denialism, we aim to uplift and center the global majority’s needs. Redistributing power requires active participation by people of the global majority; it also requires active participation by white folks who recognize the greater visibility given to white-led/dominated COVID advocacy organizing efforts. This offering is open to all those who wish to work actively against these realities and there will be affinity spaces to do so.

To prepare for this Community of Practice:

  • Ensure that you attended either PeoplesHub's Resisting COVID Denialism series. If you did not attend these you can be nominated by a participant and name them in your registration submission.
  • Fill out the registration form.


Access requests, including interpretation and captioners, can be made during registration or by emailing Dustin Gibson at  Requests for interpreters and captioners that are made less than 48 hours before the event typically are more difficult to meet. We will try and notify you if we cannot secure requested access. 


We ask that registrants commit to attending all 6 sessions if possible.


Please fill out the registration form.

After registering, we will review your submission. Qualified registrants will have attended last fall's PeoplesHub Resisting COVID Denialism series. If you did not attend these, you can share who you were nominated by and we will consider your registration.

If your submission is approved, you will receive an email with a link to a web page where you can complete the registration process. It is not until completing this step will your registration be finalized.

If you have questions about this offering or technical needs registering for this event, please contact registration support.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.


Free! Though we appreciate donations from those who can afford to do so.

At PeoplesHub we are committed to communication access, radical hospitality, supporting facilitators, and making our offerings financially accessible.
