Outstanding Public Health Awareness with MemoryFox
With a vision of equity for all, the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle (ULMS) empowers those they serve by providing programming and services to support their five areas of focus: advocacy & civic engagement, education, housing, public health and workforce development. In 2020, the team did not flinch as they faced the deadly giant of COVID-19.
Through their public health focus, ULMS began looking for ways to combat COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy. They knew if they could connect trusted doctors with their communities through conversation, they could save lives. That's where MemoryFox came in.

How'd They Do It? The Collect, Organize & Share Method
The Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle (ULMS) made a plan to create "Community Conversations: BIG Questions Edition" - an educational video to share with the communities they serve. This involved collecting videos, through MemoryFox, of children asking BIG questions about COVID-19. Then, they presented the questions to local doctors, who met the questions with knowledge and understanding. They produced a YouTube video and shared it far and wide!
"Thank you, MemoryFox! We are always looking for fun ways to perform our mission through storytelling. Not only was it easy to collect the video questions from the kids, they loved it so much that they wanted all their friends to get involved! We can't wait to keep creating storytelling solutions."
