Bienvenidos. Obviamente no eres un wey si quieres aprender más de como proteger a ti, tus amigos, y familia del virus COVID-19. Pero seguro conoces a un wey que no se quiere poner la mascarilla. Sí, hay weyes por todos lados y necesitamos tu ayuda para que se les quite lo wey. Por suerte es tan fácil como ponerse una mascarilla.

La campaña

Una de la ideas de la campaña es transformar los muros y paredes públicas y/o privadas de la ciudad de Austin en centros de educación. A través de un código QR —el cual estará impreso en todos los murales— las personas serán dirigidas al website donde podrán encontrar información en español acerca del virus.

Los murales serán pintados por artistas locales hispanos siguiendo tres simples parámetros: 1. Utilizar el tema “No Seas Wey”; 2. Fomentar el uso de la mascarilla; y 3. Que el mural tenga un código QR.

Esta campaña está siendo creada por un grupo de amigos y colegas que decidieron donar su tiempo y experiencia hacia una buena causa.
