The White Flags of Georgia’s COVID-19 Devastation

A memorial installation to honor the 15,000 Georgians who have died in this pandemic—and call for action to prevent more deaths in our state.

“The White Flags of Georgia’s COVID-19 Devastation” memorial installation illustrates the devastating human and economic cost of the pandemic—and the urgency for local and federal elected officials to act now to meet the real need in our state. 

The exhibit will be on display from Feb. 20 to 28 at First Christian Church of Decatur (601 West Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur, Georgia 30030). 

These white flags represent the more than 15,000 Georgians who have already lost their lives to COVID-19. Every person we have lost was loved and needed. 

Please join us to honor those who have died. And take action to urge elected officials to take bold action today. No one should have to plant a single flag more. 

The exhibit was inspired by artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg and created by the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker organization that promotes lasting peace with justice, as a practical expression of faith in action.

Raise the minimum wage and take bold action in the next COVID-19 relief package!

As Congress debates the next COVID-19 relief package, urge elected officials to pass legislation that meets the real needs of Georgians and people across the U.S.
