It’s hard to grasp the scope of the coronavirus outbreak and our many responses to it, as the disease’s impact cuts across professional worlds, political projects and personal lives all at the same time.
Here are three mapping projects working to track different organizing efforts in response to COVID-19 in the U.S. context. We hope you can use these as a jumping-off point for projects to follow and support!
COVID-19 Community Resource Map from GroundBreakers
Maintained by a network of University of Georgia students around the organization GroundBreakers, this map features over 11,000 mutual aid sites providing food, medicine and other resources. They have the U.S. pretty well covered, and are now working on Europe, Africa and Latin America.
COVID-19 Strike Wave Interactive Map from Payday Report
Payday Report, a labor news outlet and worker cooperative, has identified over 100 wildcat strikes across the U.S. since the beginning of march. The job actions range from small protests for an hour to gain concessions to large-scale walkouts and sickouts.
COVID-19 Emergency Tenant Protections & Rent Strikes
The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is maintaining this map, which tracks the various tenant protections passed or proposed in state legislatures across the country, along with rent strikes that are threatened or underway.
