Who We Are

Contra COVID is an organization dedicated to helping families from marginalized communities

ContraCovid NYC is an organization dedicated to helping marginalized individuals during the Pandemic and beyond. We are a group of students and professionals from across the country who are dedicated to ensuring marginalized individuals have the information needed to empower themselves and their families. 

Our Mission

Providing marginalized individuals the information and essential resources needed to thrive – at home and at work.

Our Vision

Realizing the full potential of all individuals to drive a new era of development, growth, and productivity. We strive to create local opportunity, growth, and impact in every client we interact with. We envision a world where everyone has equal access to healthcare and resources in their community.

Our Projects

We know that the news is complicated during this pandemic. It is hard to understand everything we need about science and policy during these trying times. For this reason, contraCOVID creates and shares important news and videos with language we all can understand.

Social Assistance

The coronavirus is not only harming people's health, but also their finances. For this reason, contraCOVID has created tools to help people around the country find resources in their area, and in their language.


Health is a human right. Unfortunately, the policies of the United States do not recognize this fact. Because of this, contraCOVID joined forces with the incredible organization, Movimiento Cosecha, to educate thousands of immigrants about COVID-19.

community outreach

These days it seems like life is totally online, but this reality creates challenges for many of the people who need help the most. contraCOVID creates and distributes brochures and posters in the communities we serve throughout the United States.

Science education

contraCOVID team

contraCOVID was founded by a group of students and professionals in Boston and quickly spread to include members across the US as well as at universities in Latin America. We are eternally grateful to the countless members who have helped us grow from a few Harvard Medical Students trying to share some information to and organization running programs to help communities around the nation and abroad.
