​The Seward Vaccine Equity Project needs your help!

/ 150


Seward Vaccine Equity Project (SVEP) is a small, all-volunteer community organization that began in early 2021 to make COVID-19 vaccines available to people of color, immigrants, and people from other disadvantaged communities, particularly those who live or worship in Minneapolis's Seward neighborhood.

In our first year, we've vaccinated nearly 500 people--virtually all from our prioritized communities
Our events work because we take every person seriously, answering their questions and working to overcome whatever stands in their way, whether it's a language barrier or needing transportation to a vaccine site. We do outreach through mosques; local independent pharmacies and other immigrant-owned businesses; union locals; sports programs; and other community networks. We follow up actively with anyone interested, to make sure that people who want their shots get their shots.

We need YOUR help with donations to pay for: vaccine incentives (i.e., gift cards for families), event expenses such as food for nurses, and occasional payments to partner organizations for their time in working with us to do intensive outreach to families, reaching out to answer any and all questions they have about vaccination. We have always operated on a shoestring and we will be good stewards of your money!
Donations ARE tax-deductible due to fiscal sponsorship from Seward Longfellow Restorative Justice, a 501c3 non-profit.
