COVID Courage

At the outset of the pandemic, Ambassador Caroline Kennedy and her son, Jack Schlossberg, wanted to find a way to honor those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic that were going above and beyond their everyday responsibilities to help those in their communities.

After a public nomination campaign, thousands of people from across the country submitted COVID Courage nominations, sharing moving stories about the commitment and sacrifice of members of their communities who put their own health at risk to help heal the sick, protect our most vulnerable, and provide critical support services.

These seven honorees represent the courage and national sacrifice we have witnessed in so many aspects of American life. Watch the virtual ceremony honoring their courage.
