A group of medical experts, scientists, researchers, attorneys and community activists will share their views on COVID and COVID vaccines during an online town hall forum Tuesday, May 25 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Read video transcript.

Curtis Cost, author and community activist, organized the town hall to help get out information mainstream media isn’t covering.

Cost said:

“The reality is we’re seeing the worst censorship in American history. And with the COVID situation, laws are now being passed and policies imposed that violate the fundamental rights of citizens. This is going to be an opportunity for people to hear a lot of information from a group of outstanding doctors, scientists, researchers, lawyers and community activists. This information hasn’t yet been widely heard, so we will bring a balanced perspective to our audience on a wide range of issues.”

The virtual event will also show how Black and Latino communities are being targeted with misinformation, and how the rollout of the COVID vaccines is impacting certain populations, even those who haven’t received the vaccine.

During the online town hall, experts will also discuss whether strict measures undertaken to combat the pandemic in states such as New York helped or harmed their residents. Participants will hear a variety of perspectives on the impact lockdowns, school closures and other policies have had on children.

Researchers and analysts will also comment on COVID statistical data and insights regarding the rates of illness, deaths and the accuracy of the PCR tests, and failure of the government’s reporting systems. 

World-renowned medical experts will discuss whether the widespread use of masks are safe and effective, and share the latest information on COVID vaccines, including reported injuries and death. Medical experts will discuss the most recent data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, including anomalies and key insights based on the rate of reported injuries and deaths relative to the number of vaccines administered to date.

The panel of speakers will share studies, facts and relevant data to arm you with the information you need to make informed decisions for yourself and your family.  

Speakers include: Abdul Alim Muhammad, MD, Dr. Lawrence Palevsky, Dr. Carrie Madej, Dave Rasnick, Ph.D., attorney Mary Holland, Alix Mayer, Min. Tony Muhammad and many more. 

Cost organized the event in partnership with Children’s Health Defense, Autism Action Network, Family Freedom Alliance and New York Alliance for Vaccine Rights
