Harper's Covid 19 work

I have been doing a lot of work around Covid-19. Most of it has been around community organizing, tech enablement or privacy. Here is a light summary of what I have been up to since mid January. I created this list as a useful way to remember what I am doing. It has been useful to describe the COVID-19 work that I have done.

I edit it sporadically. You can find the most recent version at: harperreed.com/covidwork
