Rev Evans announces new plan
NBCI Launched its Comprehensive COVID-19 Plan to Vaccinate over 100 Million African Americans and Latinos
My name is Reverend Anthony Evans and I am the President and CEO of the National Black Church Initiative (NBCI). We are very excited to share with you NBCI’s Comprehensive COVID-19 Plan to vaccinate over 100 Million African Americans and Latinos in the nation. We congratulate and thank all of our front-line workers who have proven their dedication and heart again and again through this devastating pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated and continues to negatively impact the African American church. The Black church has lost tens of thousands of our church members, active pastors, and has experienced increasing death tolls in our smaller to medium-sized churches. We want to work with the CDC very closely to determine the real data of the pandemic’s impact on our church community.

The National Black Church Initiative Data and Information Committee Independent, Non-Scientific Community-Based Statement on the Efficacy and Safety of the COVID-19 Vaccines for Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson .pdf[278kb]

The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a coalition of 150,000 Black and Latino churches, has assembled a group of nine Black and Latino physicians to assess the safety and efficacy of the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

They concluded, and we agree, that the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are both efficacious and safe, and that it is crucial that members of African American and Latino communities get vaccinated as soon as possible to keep them from being hospitalized with COVID-19 and dying in record numbers as they have over the past year.
