How to Connect and Communicate through COVID-19

Stay Connected and Communicate Through Times of Crises

Introducing First Nations’ “Communications Strategies for Native Communities” Webinar Series

Communicating positively and effectively with the public can be challenging at all times, but it can be even more so during a crisis. This has been especially apparent as Native communities across the country work to convey accurate and real-time information as it relates to COVID-19 response and recovery and its impact on people’s health and safety.

To support Native leaders in connecting with donors, stakeholders, volunteers, and community members, this informational webinar series covers best practices and community engagement strategies for various outlets, including social media, press releases, email, and websites. Project Mosaic’s team of Native American public health specialists will guide participants through the fundamentals of communications strategies, specifically on how to share coronavirus and community health information.
