"Narrative change is critical in the fight for racial justice -- and that starts with intentionality in the words we choose. This messaging guide is a resource for racial justice advocates, allies in the movement, educators, and influencers committed to eliminating falsehoods, myths and misinformation. Informed by the expert advice of our national allies, the 'MapTheTruth' social justice guide is the go-to source for those seeking to have courageous conversations and publish information with an informed racial justice lens during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond."

"Even before COVID-19 swept across the world, communities of color already experienced racism and discrimination in our health systems, by race, ethnicity and language. The pandemic has only magnified the harm our communities experience and made clear how much more work we need to do. As Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, in this moment calling for solidarity across all communities of color, we need to remember that our words and actions have an impact. The Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum is proud to support this effort with our partners to refocus our language and actions to uplift, support and unite communities instead of spreading fear, harm and hate."

Gregory Cendana

"Although the impact of COVID-19 has been exacerbated by the systemic inequities that exist in the United States, it is our goal to fight the spread of misinformation, fear and hate that is further targeting immigrants and people of color and affecting already marginalized communities. We are proud to come together with partners to present the COVID-19/Coronavirus Social Justice Guide 'MapTheTruth' -- a beacon of sorely-needed truth that that will help you navigate through messaging and language designed to bring us together, take action and live our values. Use this to lead with truth and positivity and ensure humanity at the center of our focus once again."

"We understand the irreversible harm that is caused by the spread of misinformation around COVID-19 and the devastating impact it’s had on Black and brown communities. We hope this collaborative effort to amplify the truth will dispel the racist stereotypes and unfounded myths being perpetuated through an inaccurate and destructive narrative,” said K. Sabeel Rahman, president of Demos. “Our goal with this guide is to help permanently shift the conversation toward more fact-based, affirming, and solution-oriented messaging so that people who are already vulnerable to the effects of this pandemic aren’t put at even greater risk."

"COVID19 has laid bare the systemic inequalities and racial animus that has persisted throughout the United States for many, many years. If we hope to make progress toward the goal of achieving equal opportunity coming out of these crises, then we must start with our language. Through the 'Map the Truth' COVID19 Social Justice Messaging Guide, we can get closer to making certain that our messaging for reform can build a bridge from today's problems to tomorrow's solutions. Accomplishing that starts with leading with values including aspiration and truth."
