COVID-19 has laid bare the stark inequities in our healthcare system. According to the CDC, Black, Hispanic and LGBTQ people suffer from the infection at a rate as much as three times higher than the white population, a shocking disparity in a country as wealthy as the United States. Access to quality healthcare is a fundamental human right.

MM&M is making a call to all creatives: Help us end this unbalance. Submit your best work on the topic, representing a way to make positive change. MM&M has run several such campaigns in the past, on topics ranging from flattening the curve to ending gun violence. Now is the time to convince the world that this lack of access to healthcare needs to stop, and stop now.

Submissions will be open until July, 22, 2020 at 11:59pm ET. Those who submit by July 15, 2020 at 11:59pm ET will be considered for inclusion in the August print issue. All submissions will run online. Click here to be redirected to the submission page.
