Stronger than COVID is a campaign that ran in late Summer and early Fall by the State of Connecticut on a variety of platforms including social, digital, print, radio, and TV. The campaign highlights Connecticut's diverse immigrant population - and encourages everyone to unite in the fight against COVID-19 by continuing to wash hands, keep a distance, wear a mask, and get tested. The assets from the campaign are available to organizations, municipalities, and others who would like to share them. Many different languages and American Sign Language Videos are available on this page.
