Equality New York’s Monkeypox MPV Month of Action


Equality New York will conduct an MPV Month of Action this September to help educate, support, and connect with local community members. 

This September, we will hit the ground by doing local education and outreach in 8 cities throughout New York State. In addition, we will hold a weekly MPV Q&A via Twitter and all information will be transcribed and formatted to be shared more widely with the community. 

Local Community Outreach 

Saturday, September 10, 2022 – Saturday, September 24, 2022

EQNY community members will be trained on MPV education including vaccinations, treatment, and prevention strategies. Over the span of 2 weeks these individuals will spend a total of 100 hours in the community educating and connecting people at high-risk of contracting MPV to local resources. The following communities will be prioritized:

  • Albany, New York
  • Bronx, New York 
  • Brooklyn, New York 
  • Buffalo, New York 
  • Hudson Valley, New York 
  • Manhattan New York,
  • Queens, New York
  • Rochester, New York

During the month of September 2022, we will conduct four interactive Twitter Q & A sessions with additional information about prevention, treatment, and access. All information will then be transcribed into accessible information and shared widely with the community. 

We would like to thank the North Star Fund for helping support our work during this community crisis.
