ONE Launches #PassTheMic to Defeat COVID-19

May 22, 2020

COVID-19 hits hardest on those least equipped to fight it. The virus will continue to wreak unprecedented devastation around the world, unless we fight it together.

Feeling overwhelmed by all of the COVID-19 information you’re hearing from news channels, social media, and your daily Zoom conversations? Us too. With so much information out there, we’re finding it increasingly hard to know where to look, who to trust, and what we can do to help.

That’s why ONE is launching #PassTheMic, so that we can hear directly from the experts on COVID-19. 

Starting May 21st, and continuing for the next three weeks, ONE’s famous friends will give up their social media platforms to health experts, world leaders, and economists to share the facts, science, and data on how we can beat this global pandemic. 

For 24 hours each, Julia Roberts, Phoebe Robinson, Hugh Jackman and tons of other celebrities will hand over their social media channels to medical experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Mark Dybul, frontline workers like Dr. Tsion Firew of Columbia University, and policy experts like Nigeria’s former finance minister Ngozi Okonjo Iweala.
