In 2020, the University Blood Initiative launched our COVID Code Red campaign and mobilized responders across the country to engage with a blood crisis exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of this work, we partnered with PARTNERS to launch Push 4 Plasma and raised awareness about the role of plasma donation and monoclonal antibodies in fighting COVID. 


Our other projects have highlighted the dangers of America’s ongoing ban on MSM blood donors, the history of racial discrimination in blood donation, and the need for awareness of sickle cell disease research. We have used art, education, and social media to fight for sustainable and equitable blood donation, and our work remains ongoing.
